This is a piece of my pressed plant pottery, I have used queen ann's lace and pressed it into the wet clay leaving the impression of the plant, as well as prepping the clay for a clock mechanism. Once fired to bisque white, it is then hand painted with underglaze stain, a clear glaze is put over the top and it is fired to a high gloss finish. This clock will be sent with a plastic base for shelve setting, since the clock is off center a bit because of the flower design, the clock hangs off center if put on the wall. Not that you couldn't hand it on the wall, the back clock has the cut out notch to hang it up. I have enjoyed this one for a few years and I am ready to part with it, and will send it with the plastic base for shelf sitting. Although the green color makes the plant look very similar to dill, it is actually queen ann's lace. This clock is approximately 12 inchs tall, by 8 1/2 inchs wide. The clay is 7mm thick, or 1/4 inch. If you have any questions let me know. Each one of my pressed pottery pieces is sent with an informational insert that tells about the creation process.


This is a pressed plant pottery piece. Various plants from Michigan are used to make the 3-D impressions into wet clay. Each piece is then air dried with the plant removed, followed by hand sanding to perfection. The piece is then fired to just below 2000 degrees for the bisque firing leaving a clean white slate to paint on. Underglaze stain is handpainted on each piece trying to recapture the original beauty of the plant. This is much like water colors, with some pieces requiring layers of different shades adding to the plants beauty. A clear dinner ware safe glaze is used on the surface with the piece being fired again. If the piece makes it through all these steps safely, you have a one of a kind art statement.
Most pieces are white clay with a shiny gloss surface. Each piece is shipped with an informational insert that tells about the creation process. The jewelry items are shipped in their own individual plastic package with the informational insert. Other pieces such as bowls will come with an informational insert that gives the cleaning instructions, since these pieces can be used for food service in the oven and microwave.
