Slip & Tickle
Instagram : slipandtickleceramics facebook : Slip & Tickle Ceramics
I am an amateur potter who has flirted with clay on and off over several decades. Having recently resumed potting, I have purchased a wheel and kiln and am exploring & creating thrown and slab built items.
I work principally with a variety of stoneware clays producing decorated functional food safe pots – jugs, bowls, mugs and ‘doodads’ e.g. cards, plant tags, gift tags. I have just started to experiment with porcelain, exploiting the plasticity and translucency of the clay in the production of textured pots for scented candles.
While each item I make is a one off (I have yet to master the science of mass production) families’ of similar items can be produced.
I sell my wares at numerous markets and events around the Northwest and post dates on Instagram & my website. I also accept commissions for both functional and decorative ware.
