Local Potter Makes Forbes
Andrew Beckham Crafts Terra Cotta Amphorae

Each amphora takes two weeks to construct and three months to dry.

Photo credit: Cathy Huyghe

Andrew splits his attentions between growing grapes and making wine at his Beckham Estate Vineyard, making 75-gallon amphorae, and teaching ceramics full-time at Beaverton High. He builds his amphorae in six-inch sections, using coil-and-throw techniques, with Georgies' Vortex Red Sculptural clay.

Silverton Students Make Tile

We recently had opportunity to work with Angela McGraw on making and installing outdoor art tiles at Silverton Elementary. It all came out so well that Angela shared photos with us! She and her students used our Wonder White Sculptural clay with Duncan Concepts underglazes and Duncan Pure Brilliance over the Concepts.

Which of These is Not Like the Others?

(Yes, it's a trick question. They're all the same glaze.)

The difference is in the firing schedule. Changing the heat-up and cool-down timechanged the color results of our Ohata Red -- and other glazes too! Click the image to visit the How-To page for a full discussion of the how, the when, and the results.


Cone 6 Reduction?
Sure. We can do that.

Choose your clay. Choose your glaze.
