Description

Taos Set consists of creamer, sugar, and oval tray.  I made the creamer and sugar on the potter’s wheel and I made the tray using a drape mold.  It is the result of a request from one of my nicest customers.  He wanted a set to give to his mother.  The oval tray is a totally new creation for me.  It required a bit of experimentation with thickness and drying to have success.  But the tray is the perfect size for a round sugar and small pitcher or creamer.

The clay is tan or light brown in color. The surface is a melding of 4 different glazes.  I dip each piece of the set: the top and the tray, the top of the creamer and the sugar, and half the sugar lid in a floating blue glaze that I make.  Then I dip the bottoms in a copper green glaze I make.  Next the cream rust glaze I make is poured and trailed over the “seam” where the blue and green meet.  And for the final touch, some red gold on the rims, trailed, and daubed with a brush.  The result reminds me of the Northern New Mexico landscape.

Taos Set makes a great wedding, housewarming, birthday, holiday, or thank you gift!  Keep it for yourself!  The oval tray measures 9″ long by 5″ wide and sits flat.

Dishwasher safe.
