My method of working with clay is labor and love intensive. Starting on my old fashioned kickwheel, I throw my vessels or I sculpt them by hand. When dried to the leather hard stage I carve out the feet and whatever else, press in any words or images, and smooth up the surfaces. After the first firing I use underglazes (all hand brushed or sponged in) to color the clay wares and coat with a clear glaze. Then a second firing...then Voila!
Glazes are leadfree and dinnerware safe. Vessels can be microwaved or dishwashered but prefer gentle handwashing. My signature is KC with the year made because those are my initials and it's also one of my nicknames.
HANDMADE is definitely one of the best habits you can form...
TAKE A STAND, TAKE A BOW, AND MAKE IT BY HAND!
All of the above is true for previous etsy endeavors....
however, I now live…
