AU NATURAL

A

Pottery of all shapes and sizes that are  made naturally, steeped in smole and natural materials that create a soft, organic surface.

HORSEHAIR POTS

A

Strands of horse tail  hair are delicately placed on a hot piece of pottery and the hair flashes, fusing smoke and patterns onto the piece.

POTTERY EXTRAORDINAIRE!

 

 We are trying new things all the time with our pottery and sculpture.  Textures.  Mixing  new glazes and experiementing with layering them.  Carving.

Stretching design to create something

truly unique.

You will see a wide variety of things in this section....

We hope you enjoy.

Our hearts are here, in the Blue Ridge Mountains.....and the splendor that surrounds us inspires all our work.   The tangle of the vegetation, the towering trees, the sound of the waterfalls, and the smell of the air

......it inspires us, and spills into what we create. 

 

Being surrounded by spectacular nature fuels our drive to create pieces in an earth-friendly way, using organic and natural materials to create something that reflects and respects the world around us.
