On her potter's wheel Barb likes to take her time and make a number of functional pieces that you can use in your kitchen to serve coffee, tea, hot chocolate or the drink that suits your fancy. You can choose from mugs, pitchers or creamers and sugar pots. Each is thrown from a single ball of clay on her pottery wheel. Once the vessel is leather hard, Barb pulls handles that she shapes and attaches to the piece. Her pitchers have a cut away spout as is commonly chosen in french style pottery.
All of Barb's pottery is kitchen friendly and food safe. It can go into your microwave, dishwasher, oven and freezer. You can feel safe putting food and drink into these stoneware pieces that are glazed using non-toxic materials.
The mugs, pitchers and sugar pots all hold between 16 oz of liquid or close to 2 cups. Barb offer several color combinations and one is sure to suit your taste.
The wood and water line of reclaimed clay pottery has either a waterfall or a coastal glaze. Waterfall is the darker and comprised of rich deep blues. Coastal is a more dreamy combination of mauve, light blues and cream over a dark chocolate brown. Both are over a reclaimed clay body, meaning that all clay bits are combined and allows for all clay that comes into the studio to be used, minimizing wastage.
