Bebin Cypher and Paco Sutera's Profile

About

My husband, Paco Sutera, and I create porcelain dinnerware, clocks, tiles, ornaments and almost anything that can be made from clay.
Our Fantasy Ware is a fun addition to any decor and will bring years of joy to your daily life... whether drinking from one of Bebin's mugs, serving guests from one of Paco's platters or checking the time on one his graphic clocks.

Color plays a most important part in our work. We start with a porcelain clay, which shows the colors off well and makes for a sturdy, lead free, totally usable product. The pots will look even better after many runs through dishwasher and are also MW and oven safe.

All the work is either thrown on a potter's wheel or hand built using a slab roller. Paco and I both throw and hand build. Everything is bisque fired, then dipped into a bucket of semi clear glaze of our own formulation. We paint the powdery surface with glaze stains mixed with wax, water, some of the base glaze and a gum solution. The pots are reloaded into one of our electric computer controlled Skutt kilns and fired slowly up to 2245 degreees Fahrenheit.
We met in the Chelsea Pottery in London England and started working in the same studio in 1980. We've been making pots in our Hill Country studio since 1984 and have been selling at art shows since then.
