Every piece is handmade from blocks of clay. Hand built from slabs, draped into forms, decorated with hand-picked real leaves (which can not be reused), covered with slip, hand glazed (using our own formulas), fired and finished by hand
. I create patterns with real leaves (collected locally) on stoneware clay slabs. These are by nature one of a kind as no leaf is ever the same shape, and no leaf can be re-used. These are formed into various functional shapes (platters, bowls, vessels), and covered with slip. Leaves are then individually removed, creating a negative/positive fossil-like image. Pieces are bisque fired, then hand dipped into glaze and fired again to over 2300 degrees Fahrenheit making the pieces very durable.
