|A friend of mine makes all of this beautiful pottery. When she has Cubits figured out I hope she will be here in person to tell you all about her expertise in pottery making.
All of this functional porcelain and stoneware pottery is individually thrown, carved, altered and glazed by Annamarie. She fires her pottery in a gas kiln, in a reduction atmosphere to cone 10. Cone 10 is approximately 2250 degrees.The reduction atmosphere is a process that involves reducing some of the oxygen from the kiln when the pots are red hot. The reduction of oxygen causes a chemical reaction in the clay and glaze materials that produces a variety of different colors in the pottery. The colors in the celadon, blue mist, burgundy red, blue-green and golden glazes that she uses in her pottery are influenced largely by the reduction process.
Annamarie likes to use glazes that have a lot of depth and variety. Many of them provide variations based on temperature( where the piece is in the kiln) amount of reduction and varied thickness of the glaze. Consequently, no two pieces of pottery are exactly the same.
