Red is a notoriously difficult color to achieve in ceramics. Consistently creating our dramatic Winterberry glaze requires meticulous effort, culminating in the hottest firing we do here at Pewabic, one that reduces the oxygen in the atmosphere of the kiln to capture the red hue. Some vessels capture flashes of milky white where oxygen stayed in the kiln. These "oxygen kisses" are part of what makes Winterberry pieces so unique.
Due to the intense process of creating our Winterberry vessels, we only offer it for a limited time each year. Winterberry will be available for purchase in-store and online until February 16. This glaze encapsulates the warmth we all crave during the dreary winter months.
Note that items in this collection are not exactly the same as the ones depicted. The unpredictability of this glaze prevents a uniform finish as stated above.
