Hilborn Pottery Design

We love hand-building as it gives us the freedom to twist, bend, curl and roll the slabs into fluid, organic, and functional shapes. We use a mid-range stoneware buff body for its tooth and manageability to create pieces. The pieces are then put into the kiln and fired to 1800F. Next, we glaze the pots with a matte or glossy base glaze and decorate with a variety of methods such as painting, brushing, stippling, sponging, and trailing metallic oxides and stains. The result is a wide range of pattern and colour. The pottery is fired again in the kiln to 2200F where the glaze melts to form a coating of glass and the clay body becomes vitrified. Our our general price range is $12-$150 with many pieces under $30.
