All of my pots are formed on a potter's wheel from Terra Cotta clay. The decorative work is done by applying one or more glazes onto the pots after the clay has stiffened up enough to handle, a condition potters call "leather hard". I sometimes add additional colors by spraying or brushing pigments over the glaze. I then carve through the glaze into the still damp clay to achieve the various patterns you see on my pots. After completely drying the pieces are fired in a gas kiln to 2125 degrees
