Clay

Isn’t it amazing what people can do with lumps of clay…

Glass

…and coloured glass?!

Beth McMillin

Tephra’s geological name seems to have given her an affinity to clay – she was amazed and thrilled by our outing to the annual Fired Up pottery show…

Sophia Kim

Sophia Kim’s beautiful pots look like they are made of tree bark!

Beth McMillin

Beth McMillin’s were like seed pods, or shark eggs, or giant diatoms!

Cathi Jefferson

We just love Cathi Jefferson’s plant- (and crab) decorated salt glazed vessels. They are, beautiful, they feel nice, and tea definitely tastes better in one of her yunomi.

Treasures of the earth

A few beautiful pots came home with us, some from the potters already mentioned and also a sea-urchinish dome by Tony Mochizuki…

…and a birthday present by Gordon Hutchens for our companion, who said this was the best piece in the show!

  1. Thank you, Tephra, for taking us along on this hard fired journey. The outcomes are surely stunning as well as great beverage vessels.

  2. gorgeous pottery…so many different shapes and glazes. I must confess a special fondness for the Tree Bark pots. but a close second would be the birthday gift and the Jefferson plant themed vessels. Tephra took us all on a very nice outing.

  3. The clay to pottery was artistic and beautiful but Tephra’s presence from wood to little being stole the show. She is so adorable that every single piece of art paled next to her.
