Smooth Design Pottery

COBURN POTTERY 101:  Definition of Smooth Design —  The sides and lids and edges of the pots are smooth with no fluting (See all examples for Smooth Design below). 

Typically, I do not both flute and stripe a piece. For example, normally I would stripe the piece horizontally on and below the rim in a contrasting glaze, such as Dark Blue with Green striped Glazes, or White with Red striped Glazes.  I can’t flute the Rutile Blue Glaze as it’s too fluid and would run down the flutes.

Some people want the piece plain with no stripes or no fluting. You can choose options for striping on Smooth Design when placing your order, or please contact me to discuss your variation choices. The rippled rims on the pie plates are just to mimic a crust edge.
