About my work

I make all my work myself, by hand, and paint and glaze it. I do some slab-building and some wheel work.

I make cups, vases, pourers, and most bowls on the potters wheel. 

For my plates and small dishes,  I start by  by rolling and cutting slabs of porcelain, then pressing them on plaster molds I poured, or wooden molds I cut. After they dry a bit, I trim the edges with a wood-working tool and sponge them smooth.  Because they are made on forms, the slab pieces stack perfectly in your cabinet.

I paint all of  my pieces with underglazes when they are bone-dry, then fire them, coat them in glaze, and give them one last trip through the kiln to about 2200F (cone 5).

My pieces are safe for food, and it is fine to put in the dishwasher.
