Horsehair Ceramics

Horsehair pottery is a fascinating art form that has become increasingly popular.  As the name implies, hair from the tail and mane of a horse is burned on the surface of glowing hot pottery, leaving behind a deposit of carbon and smoke that is absorbed into the clay surface.  The permanent trace of horsehair is impossible to duplicate making each treasured piece truly a one of a kind and irreplaceable.  

I am constantly surprised by the beauty that results from the random patterns, which has lead me to further experiment with other materials.  Pieces of my art in the horsehair pottery gallery are created with peacock feathers and ostrich feathers.  I find the striking impression left behind makes this art form full of endless possibilities. I hope you enjoy my hand built ceramics.
