The Day-to-Day Beauty of the Earth
One of the exquisite characteristics of pottery is that it brings the richness of the earth shaped into beautiful forms into your home to be used every day. The clay I use is stoneware clay which is fired to cone 5 (mid-fire) and it has pulverized pieces of other fired clay in it to give it grit and texture. This stoneware clay is very durable and the glazes I use are food safe with no lead. The matte glazes will show some wear over time as the surface is a little easier to get marked up by utensils or coffee stains.
I will continue to add more functional pottery here as examples of what I can make for you. This vase was commissioned by a dear friend in memory of her brother to celebrate his 50th birthday. Let's talk about what your needs are and we can design some functional ware for you according to shape, size, design, and color.
