Susan throws white stoneware on the potter's wheel. First painting hand-mixed, colorful slips on the damp pots Susan then lightly carves the outline of each design using a sgraffito tool. The pots dry and are fired in a bisque firing. The pots are glazed with a food-safe clear glaze and fired a second time to mid-range temperature, about 2200 degrees. Firing to this temperature allows the pottery to maintain a bright range of color and yet possess the durability of high-fired ware.
This pottery does not contain lead or other harmful materials.
