My River Journey dinnerware is handmade with a textured vines pattern on the outside of each piece, and Storm cloud, Woodland Brown, and Turquoise Sunset glazes on the insides. The stoneware set includes a dinner plate, salad plate, and soup/ cereal bowl. The center bowl has 3 round feet and the plates sit evenly on the table. Each plate has a thrown foot rim, making them light and extra stable.The lace pattern is accented with an oxide that is permanently fired on.
River Journey is inspired by my whitewater rafting and hiking trips in the rapid rivers surrounding Asheville. These are the colors of pure mountain waters rushing through glacier boulders, misty clouds, and vivid sunrises. If your soul feels at home near rushing water, this dinnerware set is right for you.
This is my 2012 set! I have changed it by adding the thrown foot rim. There are more sets available on Facebook if you'd like to see them.
Each piece is handmade and glazed individually, so size and pattern will vary slightly, but they are made to stack well. The edges are intentionally rustic but made to be durable. In my 30 years of making dinnerware, I've developed refined functional techniques. The dinner plate is 11", salad plate is 8", soup/cereal flower bowl is 6" D and holds 10 oz.
I do not make custom colors. My glazes undergo rigorous tests before i make them for sale, and this is the palette that I can offer with confidence.
All of my glazes are formulated for maximum durability, and these pieces will be as rich and glossy 100 years from now. I always enclose a studio card that lets you know it is dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe. My commitment to environmentally friendly practices is detailed in my Profile, if you are interested.
Thanks for your interest!
