How It's Made

The 1st step to the pottery is Throwing. Bud makes EVERYTHING by hand and then paints it on the wheel. Everything is a one of a kind. Some pieces may look the same, but no 2 pieces are the same.

The 2nd step is Drying. We set it outside in the sun on good days and it takes about 2 days to dry with the glazing process. (Glaze is the glass that is put over the top of the paint)

The 3rd step is Fireing. The pottery is fired at 2300 degrees. After it is fired, it is ready to use. It can be put in your microwave, dishwasher, and oven. The paint will never fade or discolor. What you buy is what you get.
