Allison Glick Ceramics - Functional Porcelain Pottery and Gift Items

NEW WORK! I have been making marbled clay, or agate ware, by adding a variety of hand-mixed colored porcelain clays to the white porcelain before throwing. The same food safe colorants I use to make my glazes are used to make my colored porcelain.
The majority of my work is hand-painted. After the first bisque firing I hand paint the ombre patterning using underglazes. The pattern is set into the piece by a second firing. I lightly sand the piece before I apply the glazes.
All my work is thrown on the wheel using high-quality porcelain clay. When the clay is partially dry, I trim the bottom, making a rounded “foot ring”, sign each piece with my maker’s mark, and alter the piece as needed. The pots are then bisque fired in my electric kiln. My glazes are mixed from scratch using non-leaded ingredients. The final firing reaches 2,232°F, ensuring that the pot is less than 1% porous, and therefore safe for use with liquids/food and can be used in microwaves and dishwashers. I sand and polish the bottom of each piece, so that it is smooth and comfortable to the touch and will not scratch any surfaces.
