Sealed Earth Tableware


​Sealed Earth is a range of functional sagger-fired porcelain tableware.   It is unglazed and  sealed with Liquid Quartz a non-toxic and food safe water based sealer that transforms unglazed ware into  waterproof, highly stain resistant, functional tableware. 
 I apply Terrasigillata slip to greenware and  fire to a high temperature to assure durability before a second firing in a saggar containing hard and soft wood shavings, seaweed from the coast in Devon and leaves, plants and ferns from my garden and beautiful Dartmoor. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dartmoor
