Below is a close up image of one of Mary's Teapots with my decoration. See the teapot below.
Creating our earthenware pottery is a complex and labor intensive process. We begin by making the piece, drying,
and firing it. After the first firing the work is decorated using small bottles with a hypodermic needle
attached. Each piece features an original handrawn design that is individually colored. When the
decoration step is complete, which can take anywhere from 3 hours to several days, the pieces are reloaded into the kiln and
fired to set the color. After the second firing a clear glaze is applied over the color as a finished coat. The finished product
is food safe and can be used like any other functional ware.
