WilzPottery's Shop Announcement

I create Pennsylvania Redware in a stone house built in the mid-1700's. I use the tools and techniques of the Pennsylvania German potters from 1650 through 1850 - red and white earthenware clay, a rolling pin, circle cutter, drape and slump molds, coggle wheel, slip trailer, and sgraffito tools to create Slipware and Sgraffito ware. My work is fired in an electric kiln rather than the traditional wood-fired kiln, and I use food-safe glazes.

My designs are inspired by Pennsylvania German folk art of all kinds. Most of my work focuses on tulips, birds and hearts as the Pennsylvania Germans did in their arts and I add trees and holiday pieces because I like to 'draw' them with my sgraffito tool.

Pottery is meant to be touched - my sgraffito work allows its owner to feel the design as well as see it.
