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.

Inspired by a video by Christine Boyd, I’ve decided to try and make some sgraffito tools of my own. My latest experiments have been using a vitreous engobe combined with sgrafitto and slip trailing such as you see on these … Continue reading
I’ve had a lot of people contact me about the red glaze on the garlic pot in yesterday’s posting. This glaze is one of our class glazes developed by Bill van Gilder called ‘van Gilder Crocus Red.’ You can see … Continue reading
