Thanks for taking a look at how I try to best serve you, my customers!
My pottery is made of stoneware and porcelain clays and is fired in a reduction kiln to a temperature of around 2350 degrees F. All the glazes used are lead-free and food safe. My pottery can be used in the microwave, washed in the dishwasher, and is meant to be used and enjoyed!
I mostly use the potters wheel to form my pieces, but I will often alter the piece after it comes off the wheel. I do hand build some pieces from time to time, and enjoy the different methods of creating and the freedom it offers me to express my creativity.
I also use pottery, both my own and other potters! I try and explore what I like in a new shape or form and how to refine it and make it better in my next pieces. My mug collection continues to grow as I try different shapes and once I've used a mug, it will often become a new favorite that inspires new and better pots.
Most often, my mugs hold Earl Grey tea, with one sugar. :)
