Tucked away in rural Poughkeepsie region of New York you will find a potter and wife hand throwing and decorating pottery inspired by nature. Their surroundings inform the canvas of their wares. Dave is the maker. Susan is the artist/painter. Together they provide us with colorful organic beauty.

Besides making functional pottery, we took notice of their innovative methods used to achieve beautiful wares. Being innovators, they built a wood kiln designed to fire each type of work in a single firing! Four layers are fired aided with the addition of salt. As the salt vaporizes, a difference in response is experienced at each layer. How clever and efficient! This porcelain piece is made using a gas fire reduction kiln technique to achieve spectacular color-rich cobalt blue and earthy greens and browns. Reduction firings can bring out some wonderful color as many high-fire glazes are formulated for reduction where the effects are created when metallic oxides (in the glazes) change form. Food, microwave and dishwasher safe.
