Announcement   I create handmade wheel thrown and hand built pottery out of an English Grolleg porcelain clay. All pieces are hand made, hand painted, and hand carved. My pottery is 100% dishwasher, microwave and oven safe.

I work with a mid-range porcelain clay body and fire to cone 7 oxidation in an electric kiln. My original designs are all hand painted and carved using a technique called sgraffito, meaning to scratch. I apply pigmented clay slip, or underglaze, to the unfired clay body with a variety of brushes and slip trailing bottles. Once surface work is complete, pieces are bisque fired, clear glazed, and fired a second time to vitrification.

Thanks for having a look around my shop and have a wonderful day!
Please rest assured that your purchase will be packaged with great care to ensure that it arrives safely. I track all of my packages.

I can ship to anywhere in the world. The prices quoted for shipping are for the U.S. only. Please email me for shipping cost information if you live outside of the United States. I'd be happy to send you a price quote.

I hope you love your ceramic art piece. If you are unhappy with your purchase I will refund the purchase price upon the safe return of the piece. You will be responsible for return shipping costs.
