Our pottery includes both porcelain and stoneware reduction and oxidation fired vessels in a variety of colors with forms ranging from simple shapes inspired by European and American modernist pottery and architecture, to sculptural vessels that function as a vehicle for more painterly and/or aggressive formal exploration of shape and form. Both use the teapot, covered container, cups, bowls, vases, bottles, and plates as vehicles for their ideas about formal, aesthetic, and conceptual values.
Glazed High Fire Pottery
- Covered Containers
Unglazed Inlaid Porcelain Vessels
These are highly designed polished high fire vessels, which are unglazed, but very labor intensive. Each piece requires several processes including throwing, trimming, drawing, slip application, scraping, firing, sanding, refiring, and subsequent sandings to polish the surface to a beautiful glaze like finish. Many of these pieces refer to topographical maps and aerial photographs of central and Eastern Europe, and the upper Midwest.
