I make all of my pieces individually on the potter's wheel or handbuild using a variety of techniques indcluding slabbing, pinching, and coiling.
The wheel thrown pieces are carved or textured one at a time, usually after they have been trimmed. I texture them in a number of ways, including stamping and rouletting with clay stamps. The carved ones are done one at a time with various clay tools.
The clays are cone 5--one is a red clay, the other a tan body. Bisque and glaze firing are done in an electric kiln. Glaze firing is cone 6. I mix most of my own glazes using a gram scale. Mastering Cone 6 Glazes by John Hesselberth and Ron Roy is my favorite glaze book, and many glazes that you see here are from this book. Some other glaze recipes I have found on the internet, including Charles Hughes Pottery. He shares many recipes, and they are beautiful!
