North Carolina Pottery by Paul and Sheila Ray, stoneware, ash glaze. All of our pottery is either thrown on a potters' wheel, slab built or extruded. It is then fired in a gas kiln to 2350 degrees Fahrenheit. Glazes are applied by a combination of dipping and spraying. Some of the stoneware glazes we use are - Ash Glaze - Known for their subtle colors and mottled surface effects, we use pine and oak ashes, collected from a wood burning kiln - Copper Red - Copper red is achieved by adding a small amount of copper carbonate (usually .25% to .5%) along with tin oxide to a glaze and then firing it in a reducing atmosphere. Copper reds were first developed by Chinese potters over 1000 years ago and are referred to as oxblood.
