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.  It is my hope to share the art and science with clay enthusiasts, and create meaningful pieces that enhance a moment in time.

CERAMIC WARE + CARE

Suggested use is detailed on each product page. In terms of food-safety, functional wares are made with lead-free glazes, and are 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 decorative only, or food-safe on the product pages. Hand washing is recommended, and care instructions are included to help preserve your pottery collection for years to come.
