LakeCeramics' Shop Announcement

We can tell you the story behind each one of our fish -- the body of water, the bait, the weather, the name of the happy fisher-person. Many are from Hemlock Lake, our favorite wild spot, but most are from New York State, and are caught by our family or our fishing buddies. Our fish molds are made from these fish and represent, so far, twenty seven species. The mold allows the details of the real fish to be passed on to the clay but the parts of the fish left out of the mold are sculpted, as are the sides and back. The fish is then glazed, either hand painted with the colors of that species, or finished in a raku firing.
