After many years of working in accounting, I am living my dream as a full time studio potter. I love to cook, so much of my work encompasses what is known as functional pieces. All functional ware is lead free and is food safe. These pieces go through at least two kiln firings. The first firing is referred to as a bisque, which drives off the chemical water. The second firing is the glaze, which may be followed by additional glaze firings to add details or create different glaze effects.

Stoneware pieces have been fired to close to 2200 degrees. The pieces are easily cleaned with either hand washing or in the dishwasher.

Terra Cotta pieces have been fired to close to 1950 degrees. This work should be hand washed and air dried.

Clay is an excellent heat conductor, so if you are baking in a clay piece, you should lower the recipe's oven temperature by 25 degrees. If a recipe says to bake for 35 minutes at 350, bake for 35 minutes at 325 in your clay piece.

Raku work is not food safe, they are items to decorate your home. This work is fired to close to 1800 degrees, removed from the kiln at the height of temperature and placed in a container with combustibles such as paper, leaves, or sawdust. The combustibles ignite from the heat of the pottery. The fire is smothered by placing a lid on the container. The glaze interacts with the reduction atmosphere created by this process, creating many wonderful glaze results. No two pieces are exactly alike.
