EARTHEN VESSELS POTTERY, Nancy Wall
I ENJOY CREATING CLASSIC VESSELS THAT BRING DIGNITY & BEAUTY TO THE DOMESTIC RITUALS OF DAILY LIVING.
Plate: oak leaf design (satin-matte glaze)
Tableware items are made from a mid-fire (cone 6) porcelainous
clay and include casseroles,
pitchers and tumblers, teapots, cream & sugar, mugs, serving bowl sets, pie plates,
rice/noodle bowls, butter bells, trays, Ikebana vases and more.
FOOD SAFE GLAZES. May be used in the oven, microwave & dishwasher.
The "foot" shows bare clay which can be easily cleaned (if
stained over time) by scrubbing with a baking soda paste.
Mugs: 5.5 inches / 14 cm
Below Left: Decorative saggar-fired hollow eggs; 3 inches/ 8cm.
Right: Raku Horsehair style vessel; 8 inches - used an iron based spray.
The black hair lines are unique each time.
These vessels are hand-burnished, have no glaze, and
thus are NOT WATER-TIGHT or FOOD SAFE.
A variety of my pottery displayed at a local show.
