Birdie Boone’s Belly-Bottomed Dishes

Posted On January 29, 2014 8 Comments

I first saw (and held) Birdie Boone’s belly-bottomed pots at an NCECA exhibition a couple of years ago, and I absolutely fell in love with them. Not only were the soft subtle colors contrasting with red clay body beautiful, but they felt so good in my hand because of the rounded bottom. In today’s post, Birdie explains the handbuilding techniques she developed for these pots, and the smart way she fires them to avoid slumping. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
