The handcrafted process is involved, intensive and intentional, with collections evolving over a number of weeks and months.
Custom orders are handcrafted and not created at the same time as the original collections, therefore there will be variations between the individual products. Special orders are schedule dependent and typically take a minimum of 6 months. We welcome requests for complete tableware collections and also accommodate wedding registries.
For my collaboration with Natasshia Neary, her illustrations are digitized and rendered into decals that are applied after the glaze firing and are put back into the kiln at a very low temperature firing. Just enough for the glaze to soften and secure the decal in place.
The 18K Gold that is applied to some of my collections requires a 3rd firing as well. The gold and decal firings are at the same temperature and can be done together. However, gold can not be put onto the decal. Therefore the pots that have a decal and gold go through four firings. Every time a piece goes into the kiln regardless of the firing it is being exposed to unforeseen elements and has the potential to come out with defects.
