The Desert Ware Gallery

The "Desert Ware Series" was inspired from our travels throughout the Southwestern United States. When the piece is being formed, the surface "cracking texture" is created by stretching the clay. This technique creates the illusion of the glaze on the inside coming through the wall of the pot. In reality, the glazes are poured into the inside and then brushed into the "cracks" until filled to the surface of the piece. The excess is then carefully sponged clean and the whole piece is sanded with sand paper to clean off any remaining staining before firing.
