Unique Firing Techniques. Custom Glazes and Shapes.
As ceramic artists, each of us utilizes different clay bodies, glaze applications, and firing techniques. Some of the pieces available are hand built, stamped, and molded to create items like dishes, wall hangings, decorative and functional dishes, and sculpture. Our other ceramicists work at the potter’s wheel, and throw bowls, vases, plates, mugs, and dishes. Much of the work we create is high fired in a gas kiln, leaving a finish that is food-safe and can be put the oven, dishwasher, and microwave. We also have artists that specialize in aesthetic pieces, and practice Raku firing, which is a Japanese firing technique that produces a unique and unpredictable blackened, metallic, or crackled finish. While our techniques vary, we each find beauty in the ability to transform clay into beautiful works of art.
