Description of My Work

Description of work: Carved and Cut Functional Ware Decorated with Whimsical Designs or Crystalline Glazes

Three Surface Techniques are Available: Sgraffito Ware- is produced by applying layers of underglazes or colored slips to leather hard pottery and then scratching off parts of the layer(s) exposing the clay body to create contrasting images and patterns. Your unique and hand-crafted pottery is food, dishwasher and microwave safe.

Carved Ware- uses different tools to carve images and patterns directly on the clay forms to create whimsical designs. Your unique and hand-crafted pottery is food, dishwasher and microwave safe.

•Crystalline Glazed Ware– a unique type of glaze requiring a special firing schedule and when successful, grows zinc-silicate crystals on porcelain forms. Unless noted, all pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe. Pieces that have crystalline glaze on the food contact surface are not recommended for wet foods, as most foods are acidic and the acids will etch the glaze. Dry foods such as fruits, cheese and crackers are not a problem. Items designed for contact with wet foods, such as mugs, have a durable liner glaze on the food contact surface so acid etching is not a concern.
