FaithAdamsCeramics' Shop Announcement

New work is on the way, please keep checking back.

All my pottery is wheel thrown in mid-fire porcelain. My surface designs are created using graphite transfers and hand painting in underglaze or sgraffito. I use tracing paper to trace an outline in graphite of my hand-drawn original designs. The tracing is pressure rubbed over bone dry ware, transferring the graphite outline. The outline is painted over and detailed by hand in underglaze or scratched out in sgraffito. The graphite transfer creates uniformity from piece to piece, yet hand painting and sgraffito makes each piece unique. The ware is fired, glazed then fired again making designs permanent. Gold, silver or copper overglaze is applied to pieces casually and they are fired a third time.

My pieces are food safe, but pieces with gold, silver or copper overglaze are NOT microwave safe. As with any metallic surface, they could cause sparks. Avoid hard scrubbing when washing because of the possibility of scraping off the thin layer of overglaze, it is best to treat these pieces as you would fine china. Although overglaze will take repeated washings in a dishwasher, it will eventually wear away, so please hand wash.

I've had to stop accepting commissions and special orders to focus on designing and making new work. Sorry!
