Handmade Stoneware Pottery
Currently, I am making stoneware tableware (bowls, plates, mugs), fermentation crocks and other food storage vessels, funereal and memorial urns, and big, tall patio pots. All pieces are microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe. The decoration is made with colored slips and underglazes. I get into a trance state while the wheel is rotating and have only one chance to make the design.
Sales of Pottery: Most sales are by appointment at my studio in Fleetwood, PA. However, I do limited shipping. If you are interested in purchasing, please identify the piece and contact me for more information.
Ceramic Fermentation Crocks
In January 2016, I began making pots again at Goggleworks Center for the Arts. I hadn't worked there for several years and had not made function tableware in decades. I was inspired by an incredible young ceramist, James Pastore, then the ceramics studio manager. I thank him for his instruction and superb technical knowledge. These are ceramic vegetable fermenters designed for making pickles, kimchi, and sauerkraut. They come with hand cast glass weights! 12" tall, fired to cone 6. $100-150.
