One of A Kind

Painting pottery brings me so much joy! Each piece is a one of a kind functional masterpiece with hand-drawn designs; unique and full of personality and pizazz. Sometimes its hard to find exactly what you want when it comes to dinnerware. Wouldn't it be great to tell someone exactly what you wanted and watch it come to life?....Well, thats exactly what I am doing. My dinnerware is made from bisque ceramics and specialty glazes, all of which are food, microwave, and dishwasher safe!  

Process

I make my thoughts come to life on every day items. I order plain white ceramic bisque pieces from various companies and I get creative. I paint the full piece with a base color of my choice and then I begin to draw whatever I like onto the dry paint(underglaze) with a pencil. I then paint over the drawing with more colors. Once I am totally happy with the end result I drop it off at a ceramic store where I rent kiln space. The pieces that I drop off are then glazed and placed inside of a kiln where they are fired to make shiny!!! Once the pieces have been fired and cooled down they are ready for pick-up. The finished product is food safe, microwave safe, and dishwasher safe.
