PRICING

Prices for my pottery are a reflection of both the time involved in creation, and the process.  Some of the more decorative pieces involve no less than 8 separate steps from start to finish.  I also try to reflect current market prices for similar quality work.  In addition, know that each piece is uniquely different and a handmade one-of-a-kind functional craft item.

CARE

All functional ware is food-safe; the interiors are lined with a non-leaching glaze.  You may heat them in the microwave and clean them in a dishwasher (although hand-washing is recommended). 

Some of my pottery is left un-glazed on the outside to show off the natural color and texture of the clay, but it requires no extra precautions or care.  The clay is heated to a temperature that "vitrifies" the surface making it just as durable and washable as a glazed surface. 

Handle your new pottery with reasonable care and it will last a lifetime.

A word about wood-fired pottery

I hope to seasonally have wood-fired works for sale.  At this point they are available in limited series.  Wood-fired pieces are especially unique in that they involve a lengthy around-the-clock firing where the kiln is tended to for 36 hours and more.  The effects of fire and ash impart a life of their own into each piece.  Some pieces are glazed and others become glazed naturally by the wood ash as it falls upon the pottery and melts into a vitreous coating, reflecting the atmosphere in the kiln.  They are also fired to extreme high temperatures which in turn makes them more durable.  Prices on wood-fired pottery is typically more as a result.

Care and use of wood-fired pieces is the same as conventionally fired ceramics.
