All of our handmade dinnerware is wheel thrown.
So what does that really mean??
I’ve been making dishes out of clay for... I’m going to age myself here, 21 years now. So sometimes I talk about things or use terms, and I forget that many of you may not know what those terms mean.
So, when I say my pieces are wheel thrown it means that for each and every piece, I sit down at a potters wheel and form the dish from scratch. (Think of the movie Ghost, but Patrick has yet to visit my studio!)
I don’t use any molds or forms when making these dishes. What I do to try to make them as uniform as possible (but they are all a little different:)) is I weight the clay before hand.
So each medium bowl starts with the same amount of clay- that’s it. That’s the extent of my measurements. After that I sit down and let 21 years of practice do it’s magic.
I hope you agree, all those years at the potters wheel has stacked up nicely!
Thanks so much for joining me on this journey and supporting my work. Go ahead and pick yourself a wheel thrown piece of pottery.
Until next time, keep the sunshine in your heart and pottery in your table.
