My pottery for the table consists of a variety of cups, bowls, plates, & platters that are wheel-thrown or slab-built, intended for daily use. The shapes range from round thrown pots to altered square and free-form pieces. I use glazes based on traditional stoneware recipes, and to the extent possible, add in washed ash from my studio wood-stove. The ash imparts a subtle depth to the glazes, and natural elements in the ash give a slight blue tone to the whiter glazes. All glazes are lead-free and safe for food use.
