Most of my pieces are wheel thrown and sometimes altered. The platters, trays and some vases are slab built. Most of the time spent on each piece is in the surface decoration. All of the color is added using thick slip mixed with colored ceramic pigments. A background color is painted on, then hand-cut paper stencils are applied with a contrasting colored slip painted on top. All pieces are dipped in a clear glaze and fired to cone 6 in her electric kiln.
