To say that the creation of pottery is an art form is to put it lightly. It is an ancient and modern functional craft - part chemistry experiment, and part art creation. How many other professions come to mind for which you must have an extensive memory of glaze combinations, chemical formulas, and elemental reactions? These complicated and meticulous calculations work in tandem with artistic ability. The potter must be able to see the end product in what otherwise is just a lump of earth, and to have the skill to form that earth into useful functional pottery to fill your cupboards, or beautiful stunning and original sculptural art.
Gorgeous casserole dishes, equally stunning serving platters, remarkable pottery dinnerware and coffee mugs designed with your sipping pleasure in mind.
