Our current technique for decorating the stoneware is to brush a wax resistant design on top of the first glaze, and then place a second glaze on top of that. Additional colored glazes are applied whenever the design calls for color.
Once each piece has been glazed, it goes into an electric kiln for a second time and is fired in order to melt all of the glazes that have been applied and to vitrify the clay into a finished piece. Jere completes all of the firing, because he both understands and enjoys the process, and he has devoted a lot of his time to becoming an expert.
It takes about two months for each ball of clay to go through all of the processes and become a finished piece of pottery. Because it is just the two of us and we make every piece ourselves, our production is limited.
Our work has evolved over the years and will continue to change as new ideas and glazes are realized. Each piece is an original work – the result of working day after day, year after year, towards the making of a beautiful pot.
The work you see on this site are examples of our best work.
