After nearly two decades of operating the business, she and husband Chris are still every bit in love with the process. During the busy summer months, she’ll crank out nearly 100 pieces per week, and in the winter months, it’s even more. While the shape, style, and even purpose of her works are uniquely her own, it’s the glazing technique that perhaps sets her work apart. Most pieces, aside from the Porcelain White and Slate collections, are hand painted with a crystalline glaze. Due to the unpredictable nature of crystalline glazes, each piece comes out unique. “It’s such a tricky process,” Alison says. “All of these are crystals that grow in the firing process. So you mix up the materials and you fire the kiln to such a high temperature that it becomes liquefied and the crystals are allowed to form at that point.” Every piece’s glaze has a different reaction, making each one a precious new discovery when they open the kiln.
