We have closed up 2019 and are back in the studio to begin the new year, 2020.  But before we put 2019 in the history books, we want to take a blog post look back on our accomplishments for the year. 

1. Our new web shop got up and running!

A question we often get asked is How do you get Color in the fractures??? Mystery revealed:

Lars' bowls fresh out of the 1st firing (bisque firing).

They look pretty good as they are but they aren't finished yet.

Lars applies a colored slip or engobe to the surface with a...

Seems spring is long time coming this year. All our flowering trees and bushes are in full swing but it has yet to reach 70 degrees and, in fact, struggled to get over 60. Patience, grasshopper, it will come.

We are pushing ourselves into our spring/summer season, wanti...

Lars' work is best recognized by his unique textural surfaces. We are often asked to explain the process that he uses as his technique is not a standard one used by many ceramists.

In my last post, I discussed creating the initial phase of my hand built forms. Next the work begins to refine it. 

After the form has been 'roughed out,' and has had time to rest and becomes dry enough to handle without straining the form, the refining begins....

Lars does all of our wheel work while I do the majority of our hand building. Today, I worked on forming tiny bowls while he worked to refine a number of his textural tumblers. (I'll describe his process on another day so I can capture some photos for you!)
