Cornerstone Pottery Farm in Silang Cavite: Functional and Aesthetic Stonewares
Updated as of March 30, 2021
Situated in a charming shop in Silang Cavite, Cornerstone Pottery Farm produces world-class handmade stonewares using locally and internationally sourced clay.
Pottery is an intricate form of art and it takes a lot of effort to produce both a functional and aesthetic stoneware—let alone find authentic and handmade ones.
Thankfully, Cornerstone Pottery Farm promises the same as it first opened its doors in 1996.
Inside the pottery farm, you’ll find the production area where they do the process starting from pouring the clay into the molds, down to assembling, drying, firing, and glazing the items.
Apart from the production area, you can also find the workshop area, where the owner EJ Espiritu usually creates premium items and conducts pottery workshops.
Unfortunately, pottery workshops are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last and definitely not least is the shop where all items on display are for sale.
Here, you can purchase mugs that range from Php 150 to Php 250. There are also vases, pots, and various ceramic wares for display.
Cornerstone Pottery Farm’s beautiful and unique wares may also be found in your favorite neighborhood coffee shops, monthly bazaars, and yearly art fairs in the metro.
