Susan Bach creates one of a kind vessels, teapots and plates. Her pieces incorporate highly decorative surfaces which reflect her ongoing fascination with patterns.
Susan starts with slab built or wheel thrown earthenware. After the first firing, the smooth white surface is decorated with under glaze imagery applied with a fine tipped slip trail bottle. She then lines the vessels with a bright glaze and coats the outside with a high gloss clear glaze. A second firing produces the brilliant shine and lovely feel of the final piece.
People are immediately drawn to the striking black and white patterns, the delicate and whimsical forms and the fun of discovering the rich color inside.
Although these pieces are delightfully decorative, they are completely food safe. Hand washing is encouraged and should not be used in a microwave.
