The series of porcelain pieces are all one of a kind and wheel thrown. After the pieces are leather hard (the clay is firm, but not dry) they are carved, cut out, and incised by hand. The carved work is designed to fit each each individual hand made piece. After the pieces are dry, they are fired in a bisque firing to get rid of the chemical water in the clay. The pieces are then fired in a glaze fire, usually in a reduction kiln (gas fired) to cone 11, between 2300-2400 degrees F.

The tinted porcelains were done using a very light wash of stains applied before the pieces were bisqued. They were covered with a clear glaze. It gives the pieces a watercolor effect.

A large planter in this style was purchased during the Alexander administration for the Tennessee Governor's Mansion. Unfortunately, we do not have a photograph of it, and many of our other pieces. Often they would come out of a kiln right before we left for an art fair and would be sold during that show with out being photographed.
