Items similar to Celtic inspired amphora in Irish Tri-Color and floral design on Etsy

This piece actually began as a challenge from the owner of one of the studios I teach in. You can watch me throw the initial shape here: https://youtu.be/fPNm8bKcMPI I love amphora's and many of the classic Greco-Roman shapes, so I was excited to make this piece. After I threw the first shape I threw the base and used an extruder to create the handles. After it was assembled I than carved, painted and fired the piece once. Than added more details with another round of painting and fired it…

Green white and blue rutile email napkin holder

I attempted taking the slab bowl concept and bringing it to a smaller scale. I love the way the clay folded and used this simple, clean glaze combination on it. Its totally free standing and is technically food safe, though.Im not sure how you would use it for food. The shape names me think it can

Jackson Pollock abstract painted plate

This plate is completely food safe and functional. It was a demo to my class on how to make plates. Afterwards I decided to experiment with slips and the wheel for decoration. Clearly I borrowed heavily for the Pollack method of painting. This plate is dishwasher safe, oven safe, microwave safe and

Bowls

Squared rice bowl with white interior and shino glaze

Sometime I just love experimenting with my boowl shapes. Here is a great example. I manipulated it into a squared shape, carved some texture for the bottom and removed a corner so your eating utensil can rest comfortably. You can eat whatever you like out of the bowl of course, but it would fit a

Bowls are the ultimate multi-purpose dinnerware. We eat soup, stew, cereal, salad, dips, chips etc out of them. But why not eat out of something with a little more style and flair. This celticly inspired hand thrown, hand painted and hand glazed bowl is sized for all the above. Hand

Bowls are the ultimate multi-purpose dinnerware. We eat soup, stew, cereal, salad, dips, chips etc out of them. But why not eat out of something with a little more style and flair. This celticly inspired hand thrown, hand painted and hand glazed bowl is sized for all the above. Hand pained on the inside with a floral design of leaves and roses the outside is finished with green oribe glaze. Obviously, this bowl is completely food safe. It can be cleaned in the dishwasher and heated in…

Hand thrown on the wheel, this is a closed form double wall vessel. Essentially it is a bowl within a bowl, closed together. Once closed together it was hand carved by me. The glaze is an oribe green, which is food, dishwasher and microwave safe. However, I see this as more of accent

Celticly inspired with Irish and Scottish tradition in mind this bowl is meant as more than just a display piece. Beautifully octaganolly shaped both on the wheel and later by hand, this bowl is also hand drawn, carved and painted.  It is finished with a food safe glaze so it is safe to

Items similar to Large carved/decorated display bowl on Etsy

Celticly inspired with Irish and Scottish tradition in mind this bowl is meant as more than just a display piece. Beautifully octaganolly shaped both on the wheel and later by hand, this bowl is also hand drawn, carved and painted. It is finished with a food safe glaze so it is safe to place uncut rind fruit and other large edibles. There are cutaways in the bowl, so I do not recommend anything wet or small. The cutaways also make this bowl useful for knitting! With its large size and…

Shino treasurer chest

I love being organized. Having places for my things. Drives me nuts when my stuff is just strewn about. Perhaps thats why I love making treasure chests to store things in. This treasure chest was made from one thrown piece of clay and then separated when trimming. So the top fits seamlessly with

Items similar to All purpose jar in shino glaze on Etsy

Its not quite a big enough jar to put cookies in, but it is big enough to help you organize your kitchen, desk or bed room. It is excellent for spices, salt, sugar, thumb tacks, paper clips, rings, earrings etc. The jar is completely food safe, microwave safe and dishwasher safe. With the lid the jar is 4 1/4" round and 3 1/2" tall.

There is so much happening with this planter and I love all of it. To begin on the inside its a combination for a slate blue glaze and a raw sienna glaze. The result of this combination is an amazing rutile run with the glaze. The bottom of the inside of the pot has almost a sky blue warmth to it. On the outside there is another glaze combination of raw sienna over gun metal. Below that red earth tones painted on with oxides. Its a beautiful piece in my humble, definitely biased opinion. It…

Sometimes you just need a container. You need it for a plant, for candy, for paper clips or pencils. Whatever it may be, you need something to put something in. Heres a set of those. Use them for whatever you need them for: home, office, organization, decorative and everything in between. The glaze is a slate blue around the rim and on the inside. The lower half of the outside is done with oxide colorants painted on hence the variations and complexity of color. Id recommend these for…

Sometimes you just have to play around with something. Clearly this isnt a typically shaped planter. I purposefully distorted the clay: smacking it against the table, hitting it with wood paddles and trying to create interesting lines and shadows on the piece. Its glazed with a raw sienna glaze as well as painted with earth tone oxides. Thats how I was able to get variations in the earth tones. Personally I think this would be a great planter for leafy vine plants like a philodendron or…

Sometimes you just need a lot of a beverage: coffee in the morning after a long night of the baby crying, a tall glass of beer to celebrate your team winning. You get the idea.  Now think about that cup and imagine it not looking like everyone else. It is unique. More importantly, its yours!  Now scroll back up and look at that cup. That could be your unique cup!!!

For those who love a good cup of coffee in a funky mug, this is you kind of mug! Imagine a rich cup of french roast, espresso or cappuccino.  These are not my typical mugs. They were meant for a commission I had done last year, but there were slight cracks around the handle joints. The mugs and handles are perfectly good though, so I kept the mugs and finished them as I would like. The mugs are finished in a combination of blue rutile on the outside and shino glaze on the inside. They are…

Appearances can be deceiving. This piece might look black, but in actuality its a deep dark brown. The glaze is officially called mink.  It is food safe and the rim is rounded off so it would be comfortable to drink from, however I look at it and see it for ice cream, more organizational purposes or as something decorative. I guess its just the artist in me. The piece is 4.25 round and 3 tall.

triple wall vessels

Your place to buy and sell all things handmade

As you've seen from my other listings, I've been playing around with a triple wall shape. With this piece, I began by making the middle hollow. This essentially determined that it would be a planter I suppose. Of course, you can use it however you like. I can see it being purely decorative or semi- functional. Perhaps using the middle for flowers and the outer ring for scent diffusion. The piece is finished in a beautiful shino glaze. It is dishwasher safe as well. It is 8 1/2" round and…

Blue rutile and oribe green triple wall vessel vase with lid

This is a multifuntional piece in many way. First there is the vase section wich can be uses for either candles, flowers or whatever you feel best fills the space. After that there is a second ring which could be filled with either valubles or soemthing that diffuses a scent. Third is a final ring

Japanese Anagama wood firing is a long, slow and ancient way of making ceramic pieces. I fell in love with this form of firing and as you can see from my store have several of these pieces available. My love of it comes from the flashing and earth tones it produces. No 2 pieces, even if they were sitting together in the kiln are alike. This particular cup is a little taller than some others, almost mug size. It will easily hold all your tea, coffee and other beverage needs. Youll see…
