Glazed Stoneware

Although I am always trying out new glazes, I have three glaze combinations that I especially enjoy using: a deep blue, a red/black combo, and a turquoise. I sometimes apply a latex resist to my first layer of glaze and use a secondary glaze over that to generate more interesting design elements and color variations. I enjoy the way in which this technique creates flowing lines and additional color tones on the entire piece. I make sets of bowls, coffee pour-overs and mugs, tumblers, vases and pitchers as well as lidded pots.
