About PondScumCeramics

Sales 25,525
On Etsy since 2012

How it began.

20 years ago,
While throwing a vase on the potters wheel with some extremely wet clay, the vase fell over and was smashed. Instead of discarding it and starting over, I stretched it out, added some fins, and transformed my smashed vase into a fish. It was from that first smashed vase that Pond Scum, Inc was born.

Most of the pieces begin as wheel thrown vessels. The vessels are altered and appendages are attached to form some creature. Each piece is kiln fired to 2165 Degrees, a temperature that helps provide strength to the piece.

The finish on each piece is a base coat of acrylic paint with ceramic stains and textured acrylic paint detailing. I prefer using acrylic paints over traditional ceramic glazes because they afford me a much wider range of color which adds to the WHIMSY of my work.
