The Donald Schnell Studio on St. John creates a variety of exciting, handcrafted ceramics, from water fountains, lights, signs, planters, and vases to musical windchimes and dinnerware.
The Studio's creations capture the feel of the islands. Coral sand and melted glass reproduce the vibrant colors of the rocks and water of the Caribbean. From raw clay blended with Virgin Islands coral sand each individual item is created by hand or with the potter's wheel. Each piece is allowed to dry then fired to 1600 degrees.
