My pots are wheel-thrown terracotta or porcelain. The terracotta pots are brushed or sprayed with colored slips and once fired have a warm, low luster surfaced over a vitrified, burnt umber body. The porcelain pots are reduction fired with celadon, wood ash, copper red, and saturated manganese and iron glazes. The finished pieces have jewel-like depth of color that floats over a milky white body.
