Three little pearl green pears with little twig stems sitting on a pearl green tray. These are so precious and can be placed anywhere in the home for a pop of color and charm.

A little bit about the process:

There are a wide range of techniques one can choose in working with clay. Hand-building and throwing on the potter’s wheel are the primary methods I tend to use in my studio. I used two hand building processes to create these pears and tray. I pinched the little pears from a lump of clay leaving a small hole at the top so I could add the twig stem after they were fired. I made the tray from a slab of clay. Slabs of wet clay are rolled out (like a pie shell) on a piece of canvas. The wet clay is then cut into the desired shape and draped either into a form or over a form. As the clay dries, it retains the shape of the form.

Stoneware is clay that can be fired to a high enough temperature to vitrify it. This means it is not porous and will not absorb moisture or leak when liquid is left in it, which makes it well-suited to its use in creating kitchenware and tableware. It is fired in a pottery kiln to at least 2200° F. In my studio, I work primarily with a white stoneware clay because I love the way the glazes look over the white clay.

Glaze is a coating of glass which is fused to the surface of a clay piece during the kiln firing. It adds color, texture and strength to the piece. Choosing a glaze to finish a piece is as important as the creating of the piece. Most potters have spent years developing and testing their own particular glazes that work well with their clay bodies and their kiln firing temperature. Not only does glaze add beauty to the piece, it helps to seal the clay so it becomes water proof and easy to clean.
