kiln firing 23 March 2021

I just opened the kiln, and have some new porcelain pots!


I don’t sell pots online. 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. You can see them on my front porch in Old Washington. Large plates are $80. Cups and the small sandwich sized plates are $40 each. First come, first served. The porch has a ‘half off’ table with perfectly functional pots, that have slight flaws.

If you are looking for a good reason to come visit: this weekend March 27, 2021, we are having an Art And Chocolate festival in our little historic village of Old Washington from 10-5pm.

kiln firing 27 January 2021

I just opened the kiln, and have some new porcelain pots. This batch had a lot (6) of plates, which take up a lot of space in the kiln, so this firing does not have as many pots as firings in the past.

kiln firing 22 January 2021

I just opened the kiln, and have some new porcelain pots. Most exciting to me are the new plates. These little rectangle plates are about 8″x6″ a perfect size for a sandwich and some chips, or three tacos.

kiln opening – 7/28/2020

I recently had a kiln opening, with new porcelain! you can see a photo gallery with all of them by clicking the link here: http://www.kenswinson.com/art/index.php?/category/22 or click the photo below

I believe that pots need to be seen in person, so I don’t sell them online. They are on my front porch, if you live nearby, or want to take a scenic drive in the country, come visit my house in historic Old Washington, where you can pick them up and hold them.

Here’s another idea, maybe it’s too crazy, or too much work, but i’ll just put it out there:

I’m serious about the safety of myself, my community, and my friends and neighbors during the pandemic. I have not been showing in big groups or indoors. I AM comfortable with showing artwork outside (like on my front porch), to small groups, on a porch, driveway, park or garden, with a mask, hand sanitizer, etc. I am thinking about taking my pots on the road. if there is enough interest, you live relatively closeby, and can commit to buying a few pots, I will come to you (kind of like the old fashioned door to door salesmen).

What do you think? Is that crazy? maybe it’s easier to just visit old washington and come to my front porch? Anyway, hope you like the new pots! I

collection of porcelain pottery displayed on a porch

My first kiln load using only porcelain. Porcelain is a beautiful clay, with a rich history. It does take some extra care, and there is a learning curve. Still—over half this load are beautiful. Some are going to need some touch ups, and a few are going to end up in the garden. They are on my front porch, if you want to see them in person.
