Our Story

The Claw and The Sea is the brainchild of two lovers, Ronald Shaw and Jeni Licata. Together, we create an array of functional and sculptural ceramics inspired by botany, mycology, marine biology, and astronomy. These pieces range from handmade, soda-fired tableware sets like plates, cups, bowls, and serving pieces, to our sea-urchin-themed salt and pepper shakers, starfish Christmas ornaments, or salvaged pallet wood urchin towel racks. We also have intricately-carved sporenet terrariums with homegrown and propagated succulent plants. At The Claw and The Sea we create a number of unique, handmade ceramic products that would complement your current inventory, and bring something completely new to your store. We have sculptural and functional wares, large and small, with a wide range of price points to attract a variety of customers with varying budgets.

We currently reside and work in West Palm Beach, Florida at our home studio and gardens. Ron has a private studio at The Armory Art Center where he teaches and is a part-time studio technician, and Jeni teaches children's clay classes. Clay is our love and obsession—we are completely dedicated to creating beautiful pieces and inspiring others to do the same. The Claw and The Sea is our life—we produce unique, handmade products that people enjoy!
