glazes + finishes for custom orders
we fire our stoneware pottery in either wood or electric kilns. all glazes + surfaces are food + dishwasher safe.
wood-fired glazes vary piece to piece and between firings. we've tried to represent a variety of results here!
of course, please be in touch with any additional questions you may have. thanks! ~Becca + Nathan

*Natural Ash is the bare clay colored only by the ash from the burning wood in our firing. It is often characterized by speckled caramel + brown tones. While we sand it smooth, it is definitely our most "rustic" glaze. (Available on dinnerware + everything else!)

finish : wood-fired glaze : Goldenrod style : round mug
glazes pictured : Matte Black*, Celadon**
*Matte Black is a very dry but attractive glaze which can actually be used like a chalkboard! (Available on outsides only.)

finish : electric (solar-power offset) glaze : Rustic White* left - right : Becca's dinner plate, everyday bowl (a.k.a. the plowl)
*Rustic White is in truth a bit of a mis-nomer as the feel of the glaze is smooth + glossy, not really rustic at all. This glaze takes its name from the bare-clay edges, which are rustic in appearance only, and are smooth to the touch. The white color is brushed on, so you'll see some variation in color/depth from the brushing technique.
