Anne Bray Pottery
Our Pottery
All of our pottery is one of a kind wheel thrown
or handbuilt stoneware.  Most pieces are
functional, but occasionally purely decorative
work is done as well.

Our glazes are lead free and the pottery is
dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe.  I do
recommend that you keep the pottery away from
the heating element in the bottom of the
dishwasher, as the pottery may not like the
direct heat. I also recommend that you place the
pottery in a cold oven and then preheat the oven
and pottery together.

For those who don’t know, when wheel thrown
pottery is semi-dry it is trimmed, then allowed to
air dry until totally dry.  It is then bisque fired, a
process that makes the piece hard enough to
handle without breaking.  Then it is glazed by
dipping or spraying and again fired in the kiln at
temperatures around 2200 degrees (cone 6
electric), a process that takes several hours.  
There is always the possibility that the kiln god
will jump in there and make glazes run or small
cracks magically appear.  So, it is always a
surprise when the kiln is opened.  We always
hope good things will happen.  The unknown is
what makes custom orders a challenge.  Please
don’t give me a short deadline!!!
