Welcome to our new handmade dinnerware section. The Horizon series started as a request for some new dishes from Theresa. I hadn't thrown any dishes in a dozen years or so, but I had been thinking about it and I knew what qualities I wanted to emphasize in a new line. I wanted a vigorous, hand thrown quality to predominate. The decorative elements needed to be minimalized, swiftly executed and subtle in color. The horizon imagery is hand painted using Japanese sumi style brush strokes- that is a single stroke to indicate the desired image. The dots allude to objects or ideas outside of the visible landscape. Finally, the dishes needed to be a technically perfect as possible, so they would function well with decades of use.
