The Process of Handmade Crafts
Our love of nature has inspired our pottery work. Each piece is lovingly hand build using slab building technique. Slab building is basically using a raw clay body and rolling or pounding into a slab about .25 inches thick. From there, templates can be used to cut and build each piece. Leaves, blocks, forms and molds can be used to create impressions and shapes.
We especially enjoy working with natural foliage shapes. Ferns from our farm make a lovely reverse stencil. We have used leaves from trees on our farm as well as some special trees in other locations.
