My pots are generally wheel-thrown and hand-built with slabs of porcelain clay. After an initial bisque firing, I glaze the pieces and fire them to 2260 degrees. The images derive from my original photographs, which I manipulate in photoshop and illustrator and print onto special decal paper using my laser printer. The toner from the printer has enough iron oxide in it so that when I apply these decals to my work and re-fire them, the iron permanently melts into the glaze. All of the work is food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
