All her pots are fired to at least 2200 degrees Farenheit and made of durable materials such as stoneware and porcelain. She mixes many of her own glazes which allows her a greater hand in the finished product. All her pots are food safe, contain no lead and can go in the microwave and dishwasher.

"I make pots because they give me a sense of tradition and family through their historical use in the domestic setting. Each day I wake up knowing that I will make new discoveries- through glaze making, texture, or form. I then pass these discoveries on to my customers who will share them around the table with friends and family." ~Amanda
