This is a West Hills Studio hand thrown pottery vase by Jason.  This is PNW Teapot actually, because I made it here, but it is in the style that folks would refer to as a Japanese Teapot.    I love making these honestly, and amazed how this one turned out.  Thats the fun about creating things like this, you have an idea when you start, but as you build it, fire it, and add the finishing touches, it always makes me wonder did I really make this!!!  Enjoy!  


This was hand thrown on our Pottery Wheel.  Chocolate Clay, I love working with this clay honestly.  I apply Sodium Silicate  to it, while it was in cylinder form, then torched with a flame.  Then I pushed out from the inside while turning with is hands, creating this beautiful cracking on of the surface.  Pottery is all hand made, fired in our Kiln, and finished here in our West Hills Studio.   


This is Cone 6 Chocalte Clay with Georgies White Matte Glaze, hand signed by Artist on the bottom. Handle was also made on the Pottery Wheel, along with the lid. Handle is made of a small wooden branch from a local treee, and metal wire connecting it to the teapot.  If you watch the video, it will give you an idea of the size, its a beautiful and unique vase.


We live in the wine country in Oregon, in the Willamette Valley, in the Yamhill/Polk County. The PNW is beautiful come visit sometime.   We have a mixed media art studio at our home, were we do ceramics, wood and metal art. We also enjoy our Family Farm, with Scottish highland cattle, Donkeys, and much more.     Thank you for visiting our site.
