ElisabethMaurland's Shop Announcement

My ceramic work is created entirely by me, on a potter's wheel, and fired in my own, electric kilns. The type of clay I use is White Stoneware, a smooth, white clay that lets my colors show off well. Every piece is decorated with colored slips (liquid clay) by hand, using sgraffito, wax resist, and brush techniques. I don't use stamps or stencils, except in cases of polka dots. Then I make a small stamp.
After being bisqued (a first firing), the pieces are glazed with a clear glaze and fired to Cone 6 (2200°F).
Since each piece is made individually, no two will be exactly alike, but I do repeat designs.
My pots are food safe, microwave, and dishwasher safe, although because they are fairly thin and delicate, they should be handled with care.

I have now added some new types of products to my shop: Many of the designs I have developed on my pottery over the years have found their way onto paper and textiles! I spent some time learning how to draw the designs on a computer tablet with a stylus to get the same effects as I do on my pots.
These designs are then printed on fabric at a short-run fabric company in North Carolina (all organic material and ink). A seamstress in Iowa sews the items for me. I have pillows and tea towels to start with.

The paper products are greeting cards and matted prints with these designs. They are printed in a local print shop on 100 lb. cover stock. The cards are double (folded), and blank inside. The envelopes are white, 100% recycled, 80 lbs. stock paper.
The prints are 11" x 14" matted.
