About The Pottery

I make functional pottery that is intended for daily use. All my pottery is made with a high fired stoneware clay. All pots are lead-free and dishwasher- and microwave-safe.

About Saggar Firing

I continue to explore the possibilities of saggar firing, the process by which unglazed pots are wrapped in dried leaves and put in the kiln in individual boxes. The minerals in the leaves color the clay and create irregular, glaze-like patterns on the piece. I particularly like using the leaves from my Siberian irises mixed with a little sea weed.
