#62 - Beautiful Small Pitcher. This is a nice solid pitcher with great black and white contrast. I added some minerals (iron oxide) to the bee plant paint and in some places the paint has a red tint.

All of my pottery is made using ancient techniques that include hand building and firing in a trench kiln using only wood as fuel. Each pot is unique and comes out of the firing with its own personalty and characteristics. With a wood firing it is common to get "fire clouds" on the pottery, which are black or grey smoke marks. Most people appreciate the rustic look this gives a pot but others may not care for it. I describe each pot as well as I can in the descriptions but check the photos closely. If there is a fire cloud you will see it. If there is a crack or other flaw I will mention it in the description. The pottery of the Anasazi shows us that they were not striving for perfection but for a vessel that was durable and functional. I will always be working on making my pottery closer to perfection but more important to me is that my pots are durable and that they look like theirs do. If you have any questions regarding specific pots or if you would like more photos of any of them please email me.
