|Form peeled away to reveal final pot|
|Final pot, ready to be fired!|
I collect natural materials and patterns and impress them in a slab of clay. Within a leather-hard thrown clay form I arrange and unify pieces of the textured clay slabs. A coil of clay is then attached to the new form and I throw a rim to finish the piece. The original thrown clay form is removed to reveal the composite pot within.
Additions, such as a handle, spout, or lid, are then added.
Each pot is built within its own clay mold. Interiors are glazed and each item is functional, food-safe, and truly individual. And yes, the leaves are real!
