Custom Made To Order Baking Terrine


Production Notes - The finished item shown in this post immediately sold and I am now "Custom Creating" these Terrines or Casserole dishes to order. If you are looking for a unique contemporary serving piece that will become a family keepsake, this is very special. The bright colors of the embossed fish were hand-painted onto the terrine, with multiple coats of underglaze before the final clear gloss gaze. My kiln fires these to 2,200 degrees so it is oven and dishwasher safe. However, never take an item right from the refrigerator directly into a hot oven. Each terrine has a decorative handle for ease of use and serving.

Items I create are hand-thrown pottery from clay on a wheel in my studio or occasionally hand-formed flat pieces. All are original and one-of-a-kind as there are no production runs of this work. Nor are the pieces dipped in glaze - they are all hand painted with multiple coats to achieve a rich dimensional glaze look.

My Vases, Bowls and Cookware are fired TWICE in a kiln, the first firing is a bisque fire where I apply an underglaze color by hand - typically three coats of color so there is layer of background color on every piece. After that firing, I then create the intricate designs, carving, adornments or embellishments with slip, special tape and/or dots to create the modern contemporary look of my pottery. After the design phase, three more coats of glaze color are hand painted on. At this time, I return to the kiln to fire the finished piece to a wonderful lead-free gloss finish that is dishwasher and oven safe.

The process is highly laborious, but I love the simple, whimsical and unique look of every piece. I am constantly experimenting with color combinations, design concepts and ultimately the actual use of these pieces for my friends and customers. I hope you enjoy the pieces for many years to come and I look forward to your feedback on my work.

Yours in Clay . . . Eva.
