Working out of a converted 1890s Victorian home, master pottery Tony Holman designs, throws or slab builds each piece of pottery. After an initial firing to 1830°F, the pieces are glazed and some are decorated with colored clays (slips) and oxides. They are then fired a second time to a temperature of 2336 degrees Fahrenheit. These extreme temperatures ensure the durability of the pottery.
The shapes of Tony’s vessels are functional but can simply be decorative. Because each piece is hand crafted, no two are exactly alike. Therefore, the variations of color, texture and shape lend to the artistic nature of this pottery and should by no means be considered defective.
