Plant and Vessel's ceramic ware is functional, food safe, created with lead-free glazes, and vitrified for everyday use. In terms of food-safety, you want your ceramic wares to be vitrified so the clay does not absorb liquids.

"Vitrification transforms clay from a porous body to a surface bonded to its glass particles at a kiln fire appropriate to the clay's cone temperature. Vitrified clay is water impermeable, making glazed and specified unglazed surfaces functional and water resistant."

Each piece is specified as oven, microwave or dishwasher safe on the product pages. Hand washing is recommended, and care instructions are included to help preserve your pottery collection for years to come.

Ceramics sustains humanity in a cyclical nature that is fundamental to our being: its materials are sourced from earth, wares used in our daily lives, and our remnants to be discovered in archeological finds.  Inspired by a serendipitous encounter at The Contemporary Art School of Austin, it is my hope to share the art and science with clay enthusiasts, and create meaningful pieces that enhance a moment in time.

Plant and Vessel is a collection of studio ceramics made in Austin, Texas.  Each ceramic piece is an expression of clay and curvilinear design. A unique selection of plant babies will be available summer 2019. You can follow the process in the studio workbook.

Clay is strengthened by heat and compression with each kiln fire. It is then inspected for durability and integrity to its function and design.
