3. Terra Cotta Moss Finish, Available Now

 - 1. Mineral Point Rims

Sorry, my spring production is nearly sold out. I apologize for the slim pickin's here, but my summer show and Honduras travel kept me from making pots at home all summer.  But, I've got a new round of production underway for Fall/Holiday! 

 Using a special technique I've devoped over the years, a wash of minerals is applied to each pot before firing to give it a naturally aged patina that highlights the recessed areas of coggles and incised lines.  After applying the mineral wash, each piece is fired to approximately 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, assuring that the pot will be very durable over many seasons. 

Shown at the right is a Provencal Urn I made as part of the Guy Wolff Collection in 2003.  It is shown here after many years adorning the porch of a lovely home in Mill Valley, California. 

 

1. Mineral Point Rims  - 1. Mineral Point Rims

In the 1830's and 1840's, Mineral Point, Wisconsin was rapidly being populated with European immigrants who came to mine lead and zinc which were abundant there. Flowerpots from this area were distinctive for their richly ornamented rims. Many of those pieces are attributed to German immigrant potter Bernard Klais, who produced pottery from 1858-1883.

IIpswitch Pot with Attached Saucer  - IIpswitch Pot with Attached Saucer

The inspiration for the Ipswitch pot comes from the southwestern Wisconsin potteries found near Belmont and Mineral Point in the 1840's. Underneath its piecrust rim, reminiscent of Cornish pasties, is a dentil motif similar to those found under the eaves of the Greek revival brick buildings which were built around the same time period.
