• Ceramics by Keith O'Connor

Keith and Laurie O'Connor of the N.H. seacoast make their colorful pottery beads completely 100% by hand. The duo patiently cut , roll and shape the clay, impress, carve and pierce each bead before firing them in a bisque kiln. Keith paints each bead with as many as 4 coats of their fabulous glazes and carefully arranges them in a handmade clay container that fits into a kiln for a second firing. Three types of clay are used - raku, stoneware and porcelain which are fired at their own times and temperatures. After firing and cooling, the raku beads must be tumbled, washed and hand- scrubbed to remove soot before drying, inspecting and sorting by style and color. So much love and so much work for each little bead - enjoy!
