Charlotte Storrs makes functional stoneware, pots and dishes which can be used on a daily basis. Pots are fired to 1250 degrees in an electric kiln using green electricity. She prefers to use muted, natural colors or white glaze. Decoration is limited to combing, faceting or using patterned ceramic rollers on the clay. Since visiting potters in Japan she likes to incorporate akebia vine in her work, imported from Japan.
