Many of you know me here as an aficionado of pu'er. But my love of tea brought me to a new obsession in August 2008 when I began making ceramic teaware. Since then, I have dived in headfirst into making pots and formulating my own glazes.
Lidded forms, teapots & teaware made from dark colored clay bodies have been my recent focus. Seeing ceramics as man-made stone and firing as controlled geologic process, I try to bring rocky, earthy surface texture to my pieces. With glazes, I'm currently toying with ash glazing and mimicking high-fire glazes in a mid-fire electric kiln.
