This beautiful spoon rest is now happily living on our stove. I am very impressed with the artistry and craft-women-ship (is there a gender neutral replacement for "craftsmanship"??) of this piece. It's just perfect! Lovely glaze and gorgeous color. Thank you for your speedy shipping of it, the super safe bubble wrap packaging, the nice gift wrap box, and a truly wonderful shopping experience. All are very much appreciated!!

About

Allison Glick Ceramics - Functional Porcelain Pottery and Gift Items

I have been exhibiting and selling my work at arts and crafts festivals in the Boston area since 2011. My mother Sheryl and I opened our Etsy shop in January of 2014 so that we would be able to connect with buyers in a larger geographical area.

My process: I throw each pot 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. After the first firing I hand paint the patterning using underglazes. The pattern is set into the piece by a second firing. I lightly sand the piece before I apply the glazes. 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 take extreme care in sanding and polishing the bottom of each piece, so that it is smooth and comfortable to the touch and will not scratch any surfaces.

We welcome all inquiries. Thank you for visiting our shop. Allison and Sheryl

Detailed information on all these and more is available by clicking on the shipping and policies tab, directly below the listing images. Please write to us if you have any additional questions. Thank you.

Visit our about page for photos and a full description the process of making a piece of wheel thrown pottery.

We round to the nearest 1/4". Most often we round down, therefore, a piece is more likely to be up to 1/8" larger then the description then smaller.
