Extractions: WELCOME to my pottery web site, and thank you for your interest in handmade contemporary ceramics. This web site features a gallery of the best of my wood-fired, saggar-fired, and side-fired clay art, all available for purchase. And to say a bit about my techniques: I produce wood-fire stoneware and porcelain pottery that I fire in a small anagama style kiln here in Goshen, Indiana, United States. I also craft wheel thrown porcelain for my innovative saggar-fire pottery, that produces 'fast fossil' images in the clay. Additionally, I create side-fire stoneware and porcelain pottery that is influenced both by Japanese ceramic art and contemporary American pottery traditions. I hope you'll revisit the website often.
Sicilian Ceramic Art - Best Of Sicily Aesthetics aside, the eclectic world of ceramic art is a In its most general sense, ceramic, from the Greek Known as earthenware, the clay pottery of ancient http://www.bestofsicily.com/ceramic.htm
Extractions: The Sicilian ceramic master's craft is deeply rooted in time. This timeless art has flourished for millennia, perfectly expressing the essence of Mediterranean culture. Shapes, colours and motifs born of a profound respect for the past with an eye to the future. Terra cotta harvested from the earth and caressed by the Sicilian sun. A Piece of Sicily Like any other unique work of art, a ceramic piece begins with an idea. That idea is the vision of an individual artist. Then there's the material. The clay found in each region of the world is unique. Sicilian clay, used in terra cotta earthenware over the millennia, is different from the clay of Mexico or Mongolia because it contains a combination of silicates unique to Sicily. This clay, freshly mined from the Sicilian mountains and valleys, is molded by hand by ceramic masters, and then left to dry under the sun. The object is then painstakingly painted in ornate motifs with rich glazes before being fired (baked) in a kiln. During this last phase of creation, something miraculous happens. In the heat, the sun-dried clay hardens to become terra cotta and then crystallizes into ceramic. Its molecular structure changes, becoming firmer but also more durable. The glazed enamel also crystallizes, actually binding to the ceramic as it assumes a deeper, more distinct color.
Extractions: Welcome to my pottery page! I have been making pottery for quite a while now. I usually make my ceramics on the potter's wheel, in either stoneware or earthenware. I then decorate the surface of my pottery with colorful oxides and glazes. All my pottery is food-safe, using lead-free glazes, and can be washed in the dishwasher. I like to create pottery that is not only decorative, but comfortable for everyday use. I only own handmade pottery at home. Nothing is quite as wonderful as eating dinner out of a handmade plate or bowl! I use stoneware and earthenware clays for my pottery. Earthenware ("lowfire") allows for more brilliant decoration colors and glazes, but it is less durable. Stoneware ("highfire") is far more suitable for everyday use, but it is more difficult to keep the bright colors that I enjoy using.

Extractions: Here at Tessworks we hand paint each piece of ceramic pottery, therefore each piece has its own uniqueness. Each piece is made from ceramic clay, which begins in a liquid form. This liquid form is called clay slip. The slip is then poured into molds, which create many unique and fun shapes. Once the clay has been molded and dried it is then called greenware. While in its greenware form it is hand painted by professional artists. The paints we use here at Tessworks are non-toxic. Each of our patterns includes roughly 5 to 15 different colors. We use a layering technique with a variety of colors. By applying multiple layers of paint a raised effect is produced. You can actually feel the raised effect on each piece at the touch of your fingertips. Once the piece is painted it is fired in a kiln. A kiln is a brick-lined oven. The first firing reaches thousands of degrees. The first firing turns the greenware into a form called ceramic bisque. We then remove the bisque pieces from the kiln and dip them into a clear glaze. The glaze we use is also non-toxic. After the pieces are glazed we put them back into the kiln and fire them for a second and final time. This second firing also reaches thousands of degrees. When finished and cooled down the glaze creates a beautiful shiny effect, somewhat like glass. All of our pieces can be used for decoration or used for each particular shapes' intended purpose. It is good to note that like china or glass, ceramic can chip or break if not used with care. Although Tessworks stands by our quality products, we are not responsible for chipping or breakage due to misuse. Since each piece is hand painted and individually unique, there may be a slight difference between pieces in texture, color, pattern style and or shape.
