Wild regional clay.

"My origins in clay are rooted in southern folk pottery traditions of North Carolina.  Growing up in the rural south has given me access to its colorful history and characters, which serves as a catalyst for ideas.  Yet my work also draws from many cultures:  Greek, Korean, Chinese, Pre-Columbian, European and Mimbres.  The idea of dipping my ladle in many historical and cultural wellsprings is an adventure, my journey."  ~  Fred

"This teapot was wheel-thrown and altered using a light stoneware and fired to cone 10 in a gas fueled soda kiln.  The green glazed section of the piece is hand carved by textures inspired by nature.  The teapot handle was hand formed from a hollow slab, with carved details and peaks added. The earth toned section of the piece is bare clay, and is "glazed" by the soda ash during the soda firing process."  ~ Joy

Garden Teapot

Reiko Miyagi
North Carolina

Hand-built stoneware with free hand underglaze drawing.  Finished with sgraffito decoration and luster painting.

"Yaoyorozu no kami" or literally "god in eight million things" - is the ancient Japanese belief that all beings and objects have a spirit and divinity within.  Born and raised in Japan, my aesthetic sensibility was largely influenced by the traditional art and crafted items that reflect this philosopy.  With my pottery, I use black slip on white stoneware to draw my own "yaoyorozu no kami."  My work is the result of these "moments of blis" while working with the clay and expresses my belief in the connectedness of all beings and appreciation for our surroundings, which make us what we are."  ~ Reiko

Mid-range porcelain.

The flower on the teapot is Japanese Mountain Hydrangea, native of Japan.  People dry the leaves to brew "Sweet Tea" which gave me the idea to use the plant to create a teapot.  I hope everyone enjoys the quiet, peaceful time to brew tea.

Salt-fired South Jersey Wild Clay.

"About two years ago, I moved to southern New Jersey.  I've always tried to respond to the environment that I live in.  I found that I had easy access to unprocessed wild clays straight out of the ground.  For about a year, I have been playing with the possibilities of these clays."  ~ Eric

Sweet Teapot
NTSX197-1   $197 SOLD
Claudia Dunaway
North Carolina

Porcelain.

"I am drawn to plump voluminous forms as they seem to offer such promise and challenge.  An inhalation of fresh air, the full clear note played on a trumpet, a see pod about to burst, a bubble floating across the sky or on the surface of water.  Throwing such forms on the wheel requires an extra stretch of the clay and just the right arc to create a veritable "orb".  Pushing images, and carving into it creates an anticipation of what is around its sides.  Because the majority of my work is functional, I want my pots to be inviting, cradled, and appreciated."  ~  Claudia

NTSX198-1  Neil Estrick

Teapot
NTSX198-1     $135 SOLD
Neil Estrick
Illinois

Wheel-thrown porcelain with incised and layered glazes.  Fired to cone 6 oxidation.

"This is a new glaze palette for me, in fact only the second pot I've used this particular glaze combination on.  The application is the same as my other work but, these particular glazes really excite me because of how subtle the difference is between the two black glazes.  From a distance it just looks black, but as you get closer the stripes become visible.  It's like a secret that only the people at the table are in on.  I'm also very happy with how the olive pinstripes contrast without being garish. This glaze combination will definitely become part of my regular production."  ~ Neil

Jason Bohnert
Arizona

Iron bearing porcelaineous clay, braided wire and copper.

"Wheel-thrown, paddled square, hand-built lid, handle, and spout with added wire and copper wire stop.  Fired in a train style wood kiln in Flagstaff, Arizona with Juniper, Ponderosa Pine and Elm to 2400 degrees F, over three days, including reduction cooling cycle.  There are strainer holes on the inside for steeping with loose leaf teas, and the handle swings out of the way for easy cleaning and emptying of leaves.  Not for use over open flame.  Rinse with hot water and avoid using soap - similar to an iron skillet, it will 'cure' over time with each steeping."  ~ Jason

Color shifting, borisilicate glass.

"It is made using glass that shifts color depending on lighting.  In the sunlight (or artificial equivalent), it is a nice lilac/purple color.  Under certain fluorescent and other higher temperature indoor light sources, it has a ghostly hue.  This teapot can be used for steeping and serving.  It can withstand boiling water being poured into it for this purpose but, it is not advised to use the pot directly on a stove or open flame."  ~ Jesse

Teapot with Red Berries
NTSX211     $350
Una Mjurka
California

Earthenware, underglaze, egobe, oxide and glaze.

"While most of my artwork is purely sculptural in nature, I do enjoy creating decorative teapot forms on occasion.  Aesthetically these teapots mimic the visual characteristics and overall mood of my sculptural work. These non-functional pieces usually have simple bodies adorned with intricate, softly textured attachments in the form of fruit, vegetables, or other types of vegetation.  The use of natural forms and plant life is inspired by my childhood memories of growing up in the Latvian countryside, freely roaming the meadows and forests while picking herbal teas, wild berries and mushrooms.  The understated, matte engobe surfaces enhanced by oxide and glaze washes are earthy and rustic, amplifying the sense of natural, unadulterated environments."  ~ Una

"This piece is built using coils and pinching, a slab built spout and a pulled handle.  With pinching the clay I hope to capture the "hand" within the piece and leave behind a pattern of marks that works with the 2D glaze pattern.  In creating patterns I hope to create a sense of movement and depth, and a vehicle to draw the user in and engage them in a way that allows them to then observe more of the nuances in form and surface."  ~  Brenda
