Kiln Opening 15 December 2021

Yesterday I had a kiln firing–Including a special group of real gold lustered spice jars. They are about 12 oz in size. Perfect for keeping salt or sugar, if you need an occasional pinch, or a jar for honey, mustard or relishes. I ALSO fired my first test bowl using a new RED color!

Kiln Opening 24 November 2021

This firing was exciting because I fired 2 new forms: Jugs and little side dish bowls. The jugs are about 5 1/2 inches tall. The bowls are about 2 inches tall with about 4 inch diameter. A perfect size for ice cream, or a side dish of peas or beans.

The beautiful thing about black and white porcelain is that it looks great no matter where you use it. If you have been looking for some pots with COLOR: I have some deep cobalt blue cups, and one side dish bowl.

All of these pots are handmade porcelain, with my signature and date carved in the bottom. They are food safe and can be used in the microwave. Swipe or click the arrows below to see all the pots from today’s firing

Kiln Opening 12 November 2021

I’ve had really good luck lately, with multiple kiln firings that have zero losses.

Today, the kiln gods decided to cut me down a notch. I had a large blue chicken plate, where the clear glaze was too thick and got cloudy. it’ll look nice in my garden/pottery graveyard.

Another pot, had a s-crack—those pesky cracks on the bottom of a pot that happen from time to time. The crack did not go all the way through, so it’s a completely usable cup…just not perfect. It’ll end up on the half price table.

Out of 24 new pots, only 2 had flaws, so I’m still grateful its going so well. Clay (especially porcelain) will do weird things when it goes through the firing process. swipe or click the arrows below to see the rest of the pots from today’s firing.

Kiln Opening 23 October 2021

It’s been a long time since i’ve had two kiln firings in one week, but I’ve been busy in the clay studio, making lots of shining new porcelain pieces!

This firing was unique, because it’s the first time i’ve made cups without handles. They are great for juice, soda, mixed drinks or your favorite Kentucky made spirits on the rocks.

I don’t sell pots online, you need to see these in person and hold them in your hands before making a selection. I’ll have them on my front porch in Old Washington tomorrow (monday October 25) after 10am. Please stop by to pick one for your collection and to support one of your favorite artist/potters.

Pottery prices for your reference:
saucers: $25
cups without handles: $30
cups with handles: $40
bowl with oak branch: $45

Kiln Opening 20 October 2021

I just opened the kiln and have some beautiful new porcelain pottery!!!

This firing was unique, because I had a request from a very very special friend for a 20oz cup with handle. I made 7 large cups that hold 20 oz volume (or more). Don’t fall in love, because the friend gets to pick their cup first. BUT DON’T LOSE hope, because there will be 6 unchosen large mugs looking for their home.

I still don’t sell pots online, because I believe potter should be picked up and held to really know if it’s *the one* for you. However for this kiln load, I’m packing these pots up and taking them to LOUISVILLE, KY. If you live in that area, and would like to see them in person, you are in luck! i’ll be at the Thurman-Hutchins park…right across from Cox Park. If you take the Zorn ave exit from 71 south, take a right on river road, then the park is almost the very next right. I’ll be there from Saturday the 23rd of October from 11am-1pm. I’ll have a butane stove, and different teas, so you try a cup of tea from one of these porcelain cups while we visit.

Pottery prices for your reference:
saucers: $25
cups or the small bowl: $40
large cups: $55
large bowl: $80

Kiln Opening 7 October 2021

I just opened the kiln, and have some pretty new porcelain pots!!! I’m trying to learn the teacup and saucer form. I’m in love with the first results.

I still don’t sell pots online, so you’ll have to come see me in-person to add one to your collection. I try to take the best photos I can, but a pot (especially porcelain) needs to be picked up and held to really ‘know’ if it’s the right one for you. Large plates and the bowl are $80. Cups and the small sandwich sized plates are $40 each. Saucers are $25.

This firing had a few special request surprise gifts, so I haven’t included them in the slideshow,
