Extensive research precedes the creation of every piece and all are based on specific originals; dimensions, cross-section, clay body, construction, and finishing treatments all follow those of the prototype. The single exception to this policy is in the area of glazes; all glazes used are lead-free, allowing the pieces to be used for food storage and service. Great care has been taken, however, to achieve as close a match as possible to the effect of the original glaze.
Close to two
pieces are offered for sale, comprising full lines of 17th and 18th
wares made or available in the New World, as well as some 19th century
items. In spite of the broad range of wares offered, each piece is
handmade by JULIA SMITH.
decoration (such as the initalling or inscriptions
on many originals) can be undertaken on special order, and commissions
for commemorative or custom work are solicited.
Julia has relocated and the pottery studio is currently closed. She continues to pursue other forms of art and healing practice.
