Most of our pottery is fired in an electric kiln to a temperature of 2190 degrees Fahrenheit. We mix all of our glazes from carefully selected recipes and apply the glaze by spraying it upon each piece of hand-crafted pottery. All our functional pottery is food-safe and is made to be used in your daily lives.
The process of creating our pottery is never rushed, and it usually includes:
1. A scenic drive to Asheville, NC to pick up clay 2. The clay is deaired in our pugmill 3. A ball of raw clay is formed on the potter's wheel. 4. As an alternative, an extruder or slabroller is often used to form a piece of pottery. 5. A new pot is allowed to completely dry (4 - 48 hours) 6. The pot is trimmed on the bottom and a signature is added 7. The pot is bisque fired in electric kiln (16 hours) 8. Glaze is applied to the pottery, usually by spraying or dipping 9. The pot returns to the electric kiln for final firing (17 hours) 10. The finished product is removed from the kiln and ready for your home.
We hope you will take pleasure in using our pottery vessels as much as we have enjoyed creating them.
