This ceramic matchstick striker is made by hand in my studio in North Adams, Massachusetts, and is crafted using a variety of ceramic techniques: a hand-built, hexagonal terrazzo base, an extruded match stick chamber, and a wheel thrown lid. It is created using white stoneware and custom mixed clay and glazes, made by combining stoneware with pigments that remind me of the Atlantic Coast, where I grew up.

It comes filled with white-tipped wooden Safety Matches, which can be ignited on the striker strip found inside the lid. This match holder can also be used with "strike anywhere" style matches, which can be ignited against the unglazed clay surfaces inside the lid and on the cylindrical match stick chamber.

PRODUCT CARE: clean any match stick marks on the matchstick holder lid with mild soap, warm water, and an abrasive cloth.
