Pottery is the Craft, creating our pottery goes something like this: we start with Cone 6 Stoneware Clay to create greenware pieces. Each piece stands uniquely on its own in it size and shape. Once the piece is formed, it must be completely bone-dry in order to be fired the 1st time or it will burst in the kiln; this step takes the longest 2-3 days . The greenware is low fired to Cone 04, to create bisqueware which enables it to be glazed.
Glazing is the Art and this is where it begins. We layer the glazes to create unique, one-of-a-kind colors, either by brushing on the glaze or by glaze dipping. The glaze combinations on each piece are applied differently, so that no two pieces look the same. You have to know how each glaze reacts to the heat and which combinations look good together.
Once you place the piece in the kiln, the heat takes control. The piece is fired for a 2nd time to Cone 6, *2100 degrees, becoming Stoneware. Each firing adds at least two production days, one for firing and one for cooling.
The stoneware is fired to such a high temperature, each piece is extremely durable. It is food safe, oven safe and dishwasher safe. We use only lead-free glazes, the clay is certified 100% non-toxic and is made from raw materials from here in the USA.
