Yet even with those unchanging forms, potters manage to personalize their work in this honoured tradition. Throwing and or handbuilding, or throwing, then altering the forms work alongside infinite glaze recipes, application and firing methods makes each potters' work uniquely their own.
The pots in this gallery are all gas fired to between 2295'F to 2359'F. I have been firing this way since 2015 and am very pleased with my results even though there is an elusive copper blue over the dark brown (Tenmoku) glaze that I am constantly trying to tame.
This reduction creates magic, giving the sparkles on the Tenmoku glaze and turning copper into red, purple, or with titanium in my copper blue glaze, turquoise.
All these stoneware pots are food, oven and dishwasher safe.
Creating the perfect pots for people to love to drink and eat from on a daily basis is as good as it gets for me.
