We Offer A Variety Of Glaze Colors In Regular Production

Green Combination

Green Combination is a teal green (green with some blue in it), floating, variegated white with a raspberry streak through the transition of the two colors. The green and raspberry colors stay relatively consistent with the white having the most variation from piece to piece.

Mist is very much like it’s name.  It has a light feel to it.  Usually the rim is a warm brown color with the body of the piece white with hues of blues and grays.

Sky Glaze

Sky Glaze has variations of blue and floating, variegated white with a black streak through the transition of colors. The blue can go from a navy blue to a light blue.

Our newest glaze combination available by request.  This combination includes a slate-colored glaze with a Mossy color on the other side which has browns, blacks and sometimes greens.  Streak of white between the two glazes completes the look.

New Crystalline Work

This is a specialized glaze and firing process that few potters master. Each piece is totally unique, as the crystals in this glaze form in the kiln during the firing process. Most of Sue’s crystalline pieces are sold exclusively through her gallery, or in a few local consignment shops. Since each piece is so unique, our crystalline pieces are not sold on the website. If you are interested in our crystalline products, please visit our gallery in Weaverville. Or if you would like to have it shipped to you, contact us and we will be happy to send photos of our current selection.

Variations in Colors

Variation in color is due to many factors. Included in these is how the kiln fires, variation in chemicals we use in our glazes, thickness of glazes we overlap to create effects, where the piece is placed in the kiln, to name a few. We do our best to adjust.

Variations in Natural Materials

Like all natural materials the character of each piece is unique. At Salvaterra Pottery & Woodworks, we strive to accentuate this character in every piece we produce. Therefore, variations in the color, appearance, and character of the product should be expected.
