Black Stoneware for Fall | Centsational Style


If you checked out my Instagram stories yesterday, you saw that I’ve been working with dark clay bodies for fall and winter. I love white clays, they are a perfect base for colored underglaze. When the season changes, deep colors and bold colors suit the mood, so I’ve been working on some new designs using black clay.

Everyone uses ceramics in their daily lives, such as our plates and planters. Most of the market ceramics you buy in retail stores are mass produced. No shade, it’s a big world, we need those products and have a set of everyday plates that are all about the same size, color and shape. But we all know there’s something special about handmade vs. factory-made. I feel this more and more as I progress in my own ceramic practice. Every time I sell one of my pieces in my shop it is like parting with a child, something that I have invested my time and creative energy into.

The community clay studio where I create and the local store where I sell are where my creativity meets the market. Whenever a person makes a purchase from a potter, they are helping a maker live their passion and bring their vision to life in a studio.

I am inspired by ceramicists who create unique pieces whether they are hand-cast, wheel-thrown or slip-cast. Today I’m giving a shout out to fellow makers and their unique black stone pieces, just in time for the arrival of fall.
