Schulz Pottery

My Friend Greg from Schulz Pottery, working out of Canton, GA, is doing some amazing sgraffito work! This is where the work is dipped into one or more alternate colors of slip and the design is literally scratched and carved into the surface. This creates texture, either subtle or pronounced. Keep in mind this is all unfired greenware. It takes over 2 hours or more to create these designs plus the time it takes to throw and form each vessel. I can’t wait to see them when they are fresh out of the kiln!

These mugs are bound to be a popular item.
The amount of detail against the textured negative space creates the feeling of serene water, making this platter all the more special.
I’ve always been a fan of Van Goh’s Sunflowers. How Beautiful is this vase?

First sale and other goings on

Well there is some great news over the past few weeks. I’ve made my first sale on Etsy! Eight of my pots are now living in New Hampshire.

The buyer gave me my first review. 5 Stars!

There is not much up in the shop right now but I’ll be working on some good stuff as soon as I can.

I was also able to complete a beautiful sky blue celadon bowl in exchange for the work done on my wheelhead. Its the one in the front. You cant really see it in this picture but I created a small edge on the bottom to collect more glaze which adds a deeper blue accent. It was also the first thing to come off the wheel when it was finished so I think it was fitting that it go to Chris for his work.

Also I am about to send out 2 sake cups (guinomi) going to a friend in Wyoming.
