Studio di ceramica-Pottery.
After a long period of experimentation and testing at DOCKS POTTERY weʼd like to show our ceramic work. The works we produce come from the use of local red and white clay as well as semigres like the earth of Castellamonte.
We make all our own glazes from formulae we found in an old ceramics manual, many of which we have modiﬁed after extensive testing and experimentation.
All our glazes are lead free and contain no toxic substances.
