Rooted In Clay Pottery

 "We fire our pottery with wood to 2250°f. Every firing is a rewarding experience as we stoke the kiln to achieve the high temperature that will melt our glazes. At this intense heat, the flames and ashes leave unique patterns of color on the surface. The subtle variations of sheen and color bring each piece to life. When we unload the kiln, we are continually surprised to see the beautiful pots touched by the fire."

Our kiln is built using 4 old electric kiln shells. The firebox is one kiln shell placed horizontally. We use three chambers for stacking the pots. Each chamber has its own chimney for easy control of the fire flow and temperature in each kiln. Firing to cone 6 takes about 4-6 hours. We make our pottery using the ancient technique of pinching. This process connects us to the potters and cultures of the past. We use textures found in nature to imprint into the clay, thus creating a diary of our changing New England seasons. Using hand-building methods we create a wide range of products and designs that reflect our personality and our love for nature. Wood-firing our pottery allows the flames to finish each pot by leaving traces of its path on the surface in beautiful earth tones.
