The Pottery Process

Every piece of pottery goes through two firings in my kiln. The first firing is called a bisque fire: the pottery is cooked, but it is still porous to absorb glaze. After this fire, I glaze the pottery and load the kiln for the next fire. For this fire the temperature is higher, 2232° F. It brings resistance and turns it into a non-absorbent item.

*Important: These are handmade items. Dimensions can vary slightly. Each piece is special and unique, made with lead-free, food safe glaze and is dishwasher and microwave safe. I use either red or white stoneware clay.
