Seven Valleys, PA
I operate a working pottery studio in Seven Valleys, Pennsylvania specializing in wheel thrown and altered functional stoneware pottery. Stoneware clay is durable enough for ovenware, yet just as beautiful to display. My pots are created with form, function and beauty in mind. The glazes you see are hand mixed and formulated for food safety, as well as being microwave and dishwasher friendly. Current pots may be purchased through the store or local pickup, and custom orders are encouraged.

A recent poster on the ceramics mail list, ‘ClayArt’, requested information about making oval plates that were not slump molded. I thought about it a while and took it on as a personal challenge Different suggestions have been made so … Continue reading
To begin, this is not a ‘How-To’ guide on barrel firing. It is more of a ‘Let’s Try This and See What Happens’ story. Some of you reading this blog may have alternate, and, perhaps even better methods you use … Continue reading
