The salt glazed pottery we produce results from idea we developed collaboratively over the past twenty years. These pots, which range in size from 3 inches in height to 3 feet in height, are wheel-thrown and altered with hand-built additions. The elastic qualities of porcelain contribute to the surface detail and manipulation of the forms. We try to balance the sculptural aspects of the pottery with the intended use. A light salt laze reveals rather than conceals the details of the throwing and applied decoration. The additions and textures are tactile as well as visual. Using stamps and extruded pieces of clay as decorative elements, we combine current and historic symbols. It is our hope that the user will appreciate the spirit of joy in which these pots were made.
