Here's a sample of Amanda Wolf's finished pottery.

Where It All Starts :: Amanda Wolf at Work on the Throwing Wheel
Most pieces start out on the potter's wheel. Each creation is centered, pulled up and shaped to the desired form.
Another Visit to the Potter's Wheel :: Each Piece Is Hand Trimmed and Smoothed
After the piece has dried a bit to leather hard, it is put back onto the wheel to trim and smooth the bottom or foot.
Patience is a Virtue for the Artist :: Amanda Wolf Hand Painting and Decorating
Each piece is painted by hand with a black slip, then fired to 1915 degrees F.

The Process Continues :: Amanda Wolf Hand Layers More Glazes
After the bisque firing, the decoration continues with layered glazes.
