Tyson does all of the throwing, and Jessica does all of the painting. We make our own underglazes and glazes. All that testing we did years ago was part of an effort to formulate a glaze that matched the clay body's expansion rate as closely as possible. This results in a very durable product despite the fact that it is thin porcelain. We print our own iron oxide decals and fire the pots a third time to fuse the decals into the glaze surface. Everything we make is lead free, and food, dishwasher and microwave safe.
