I have been making pottery for over 15 years in beautiful Portland, Maine. I like to throw and hand build useful pots and occasional sculpture out of porcelain and white stoneware. Frequently, I will carve designs onto my work, paint designs with underglazes, or alter their shape when wet. All of my pieces are fired in a community gas-fired reduction kiln to cone 10 (2300-2400° F). These pots are food-safe, microwave-safe, oven-safe and dishwasher-safe unless otherwise noted - just please don't shock them with quick temperature changes - such as going from the refrigerator into a hot oven.
I use an assortment of glazes either alone or in combination to achieve a variety of results, often I strive to highlight my various carved designs. The glazes I most commonly use are:
Celadon- glossy pale green
Amber Celadon- glossy olive green
Cobalt- glossy cobalt blue
Oribe- glossy turquoise
Matte Black- matte black
Cushing Green- matte green
Shino- glossy white or orange, depending on thickness
MD Shino- glossy white that turns grey with carbon trapping
Winnokour- glossy grey/blue with flashes of red
Tomato- matte red/orange with iridescence
Waxy White- matte creamy white
Leach White- glossy bright white
Iron Blue- glossy warm tan tinged with blue
Rutile Purple- creamy white with purple highlights
Temmoku- glossy deep rich brown
Moz- creamy off white
