I have been making pottery for over 15 years in beautiful Portland, Maine.  I like to throw and hand build useful pots and occasional sculpture out of porcelain and white stoneware.  Frequently, I will carve designs onto my work, paint designs with underglazes, or alter their shape when wet.  All of my pieces are fired in a community gas-fired reduction kiln to cone 10 (2300-2400° F).  These pots are food-safe, microwave-safe, oven-safe and dishwasher-safe unless otherwise noted - just please don't shock them with quick temperature changes - such as going from the refrigerator into a hot oven. 

I use an assortment of glazes either alone or in combination to achieve a variety of results, often I strive to highlight my various carved designs. The glazes I most commonly use are:      

Celadon- glossy pale green

Amber Celadon- glossy olive green

Cobalt- glossy cobalt blue

Oribe- glossy turquoise

Matte Black- matte black

Cushing Green- matte green

Shino- glossy white or orange, depending on thickness

MD Shino- glossy white that turns grey with carbon trapping

Winnokour- glossy grey/blue with flashes of red

Tomato- matte red/orange with iridescence

Waxy White- matte creamy white

Leach White- glossy bright white

Iron Blue- glossy warm tan tinged with blue

Rutile Purple- creamy white with purple highlights

Temmoku- glossy deep rich brown

Moz- creamy off white
