Each highly textured, individualized ceramic bowl created at Zpots Studio begins with a beautiful chocolate clay body. Artists Heather Van Horn and Eric Hendrick hand-throw each piece, decorate it with slip to create a textured one-of-a-kind surface, and employ wax resist methods to create deep varied surfaces. The artists view each Zpot as a unique individual that is part of a family. The glaze colors of earth, forest, and water remain consistent, but the spontaneous line drawings that decorate each piece will vary. A ZPots Studio goal is working toward a renewable future, and with this in mind, the electric kilns in the Zpot Studio are powered by Vermont Cow Power, with electricity generated by the surrounding Vermont farms.
