A Peek At The Process: Clay to Cup

There aren’t many things in life that have stayed constant over a few decades, let alone a few millennia.  But hand-thrown ceramics are one of the few exceptions, and with good reason. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best ones. Our process doesn’t stray far from the origin: two hands, simple tools and centrifugal force is all it takes to turn a ball of earthen clay into a striking Mazama Wares mug.  But that’s just the start. Take a look inside our complete process, from throwing and trimming to glazing and firing to see how a ball of mud is transformed into a beautiful vessel.
