Functional and Decorative Pottery
“The heart and soul of my ceramic work is in the glazing. I employ a variety of glazes and application techniques and then fire to 2300 degrees in an 80 cubic foot gas reduction kiln. Much of my work is functional, though my use of crawl glazes, bare clay areas, and various high standing stiff-melt glazes will restrict some pieces to decorative use.”
“All of my functional plates and bowls are food, oven, and microwave safe; wire on the back of many of my plates should be removed prior to oven or microwave use. Like all fine porcelain and stoneware, my plates and bowls will give many years of service if handled with care.”
