The woodgrain line is made from mixed clay and each has a unique pattern similar to the pattern formed by trees. Its mixing depends on the degree of wedging and length of time the clay is worked with on the wheel. It is a mesmerizing process.
Waterfall captures the essence of water flowing through a stream and comprised of rich deep blues running down the pot. Colorful coast is a dreamy combination of mauve, light blues and cream over a dark chocolate brown. Mossy log is a mixing of deep green, brown, golden hues and bit of aqua blue. It reflects the variability of the color of the many species of moss. Snowy stroll is a mixture of cream, white and golds and is reminiscent of walking through a snow covered forest in the late afternoon or early morning light.
