Vintage and Hard to Find Wall Hanging - Artist Stan Langtwait - Shapes of Clay - Mount St. Helens Volcanic Ash

Sorry, this item has sold.

Featured is a vintage and hard to find wall hanging by Stan Langtwait, creator of Shapes of Clay from the foothills of Mt Rainier in Washington State. The artist blends Mt St. Helen's volcanic ash with clay and uses two ancient techniques, inlay and pressing, to make his handmade pottery. Crafted in the tradition of earlier times gives each piece its own texture and unique identity while holding very true to the look of volcanic lava. Collectors believe each of his pieces hold the timeless mystique of the Northwest Mountain Region and rate his pieces as among the most beautiful examples of handmade sculpted pottery in the world. This very lovely wall hanging is signed by the owner and Artist of Shapes of Clay:Stan on the back. It is also notched with a hole just below his signature for hanging this very desirable work of art. Excellent vintage condition.

Shipping Policy

I do combine shipping and refund shipping overages in excess of $1.50 (covers shipping materials) above actual cost, I’m not trying to make money off of shipping charges. I strive to ship items no later than the following business day. Items are generally shipped USPS priority mail which includes $50 insurance. All items are carefully packaged. If an item is damaged during shipping, please take pictures and let me know immediately so a claim can be filed with the shipper. If you prefer an alternate shipping method please send me a message to discuss options.

Sometimes Priority Mail shipping is cost prohibitive (especially for those on the West Coast). Send me a message and we’ll see if Flat Rate shipping is possible. Prices for this service is generally about $19 for a “Large” box and about $13.65 for a “Medium” box. Note that USPS Flat Rate boxes aren’t that big, so this might not be an option when purchasing larger items.

I enjoy finding vintage pieces and moving them along to new homes. I’m an easy going person and do this more as a hobby than a business, I like researching these old items to find their origins/history. If you want to discuss any items listed, tell me I’m way off base on my pricing, wrong on my description, or whatever convo me!
