Glam Rock

Ceramicist Harry Leaf celebrates the joy of music and sculpture in these bold, rhythmic picks. Each hand-glazed pick contains a pool of jewel-toned recycled glass. As a result of the firing process, these colorful puddles of post-consumer glass contain tiny fissures making each shard resemble a small, glimmering geode. The unfinished back of this guitar pick has an easy-to-grip texture, so it'll stay handy, regardless of the style you prefer to strum. All picks will vary in size and shape depending on how the recycled glass melts in the firing. Handmade in San Francisco, CA.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Sold individually.

Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.

Harry Leaf

San Francisco law student-turned-sculptor Harry Leaf earned his law degree in 1989 before asking himself "what was I thinking?" Leaf soon redirected his path to pursue his true passions: painting and sculpting.

Leaf sculpts touching and curious forms that inspire and delight, like his original Bunny On Couch sculptures, made to bring everyday art and humor into the lives of art lovers.

Leaf's glazing and design techniques have evolved over the years to include a variety of colored clay, finishes and firing temperatures--spinning new and unusual textures for exceptional new pieces.

Leaf's ceramics have been displayed in shops and galleries across the country and in the homes of collectors around the world. He hand-crafts and hand-glazes each piece in his San Francisco studio. collection

    Not a choice for mandolin

      Comments about CERAMIC GUITAR PICK:

      As a mandolin player I was excited by the prospect of a small, easily grippable pick with a bit of flair! Though the customized rough surface on one side gave it a great feel, I was disappointed in the sound on the strings and its thickness---despite its nice point, it was still rather thick for a dual stringed instrument. But, its a real conversation piece and my guitar playing friends do keep borrowing it.

        This was a birthday gift for my boyfriend. I also ordered the glass pic, but this one was his favorite. He was telling everyone what an amazing gift this one. The acoustics were so nice to hear, when he played.

              This was a gift from my wife for our first Valentine's Day. As a country music artist this pick has added a unique sound to a few of the tunes I just recorded. My producer fell in love with it and will now be receiving one! Look for it on tours around the world!

                Great product! I purchased this as a birthday gift for my boss who loves playing guitar - he even plays on his lunch break in his office. He loved it and thought it was so unique!

                    Bought this as a gift for my fiance, hoping to motivate him to play more. He usually likes stiff picks, but at the very least he likes the aesthetic, so it was a hit. (It hasn't successfully motivated him to play yet!)

                    I bought this to give as a gift to my boyfriend's father who is a guitarist/songwriter. It's perfectly crafted and so pretty! I think he'll like it.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Warped speed shipping! I thought I ordered it too late for it to arrive on time (I'm a bit of a procrastinator) but I ordered this on Monday and received it in the mail on Tuesday. That was cool :)

                      I bought this pick as a gift for my professional musician husband and he really liked it. It's heavier than the picks he normally uses, so it took a small period of time for him to adjust to it, but we both love the unique sound it brings from his guitars. Very pretty to look at, too :)
