About LurieBeasecker

Sales 21
On Etsy since 2017

In 2005 My family moved from Dallas,Texas to Cazenovia, NY. After two years we finally found our spot in the township of Fenner right in between Cazenovia and Chittenango.
In 2007 we started building our kilns and setting up shop. We now have a 100 cubic foot Train style wood kiln and a 70 cubic foot gas kiln.
If you are in our area please give us a call and stop by. Our show room is open by appointment and we would be happy to open the doors for you.

Liz's work:
Much of my work is fired in the wood kiln. We fire for approx. 48 hours stoking the kiln continually until we get to the desired temp (2350F). The wood ash travels through the kiln, lands on the pots and turns into a glaze. Along the way the flame is imprinting it's pathway onto the pots. We orchestrate this process through the way we stack the kiln. Each pot placed in the kiln can effect the pattern the flame makes on the one next to it. Flame patterning can be very subtle or very active. Many of my pots are unglazed stoneware I let the wood kiln provide a warm earth toned pallet that I manipulate through different colored slips. I find that these dark, subtle surfaces are easy to live with over time , and that they are compelling when they are in service or just sitting on a table empty. All of the work is food safe.

Peter's work
Most of Peter's work is porcelain clay and fired in a gas kiln . Peter is a master at subtle and detailed glazing with deceptively simple form. His work is exquisitely elegant and sensuous to the touch.
Please enjoy browsing through our shop!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Our pottery is very durable however if extra care is taken they will last even longer. Hand-washing is preferred but not necessary. If placing in the oven the pot must be brought up with the temperature of the oven or it may crack. If going in the oven the pot needs to be room temperature first.

Gift wrapping and packaging

We do not gift wrap however we do take great care in wrapping and shipping your pots so they arrive safely. If something does arrive damaged please let me know and I will refund your money or we can find a suitable exchange. Depending on the type of pot that was broken it may take up to 4-6 months to find a replacement.
