People have asked if we actually make our products or do we just buy and resell the products. Let me assure you that everything you see here has been made completely by myself or my wife. The only things we buy are clay, glazes, wood, and pen parts.
Here are a couple of images of pieces 'in progress'.
This is a pot just taken off of the potter's wheel. I use plaster bats to hold the pots. They seem to work well to help dry the bottom of the pot evenly since the clay sucks the moisture out of the bottom.
This is a large footed dish dried and ready for firing after being turned on the potter's wheel. It still needs to be trimmed to smooth the edges.
Here are some pieces drying out on the shelves waiting to be fired.
This is a slab built tray that was made by my wife. She rolled out a thin slab of clay and formed it down into the plaster 'mold'. Then she made a long rope of clay and bonded it to the edge of the plate with a mixture of clay and water, which acts like a glue.
This is a large pitcher that I turned on my wheel. After partially drying, I formed the pouring spout and then formed a handle and attached it. This takes several steps and quite a few hours waiting for just the right time and texture of the parts before they can be bonded together. This ended up being a pretty cobalt blue pitcher after firing and glazing.
This is a very interesting hand built 'bowl' that my wife made from a couple of pieces of slabbed clay and large ropes of clay. It turned out very pretty in dark brown glaze and was taken immediately.
