Functional Pottery

My functional stoneware work is handbuilt using slab forming techniques, and is electric fired to cone 6 (midrange).  I am currently in the process of developing my own glazes, so am presently using a combination of commercial and custom glazes.  All pieces are intended for use and are therefore all food safe.

My functional work features personal and traditional designs that I hand carve in linoleum and press into the clay slab prior to forming. This process allows me to recreate my designs in a multitude of ways for endless possibilies.

My function pottery is available through wholesale. Please feel free to contact me for a catalogue and contract information.
