I handthrow my pots on my pottery wheel using white and dark stoneware clays. The glazes that I use look a bit different on each one of the clays - more 'earthy' and speckled on darker stoneware, more 'clean' and crisp on white stoneware.
Once dry, the pots are bisque-fired to about 1000 C. They are then glazed and fired again to 1280-1300 C. During this second firing, the clay 'matures' with the glaze, melding together inseparably. This makes for very strong pots - the glaze will not chip off from the clay - you'd have to break the whole pot to see where they fuse! This durability allows the pots to be put in the microwave, dishwasher and oven.
If you don't see something that you like, I am very happy to do a custom order for something a bit more personal. Do get in touch!
