From miniature to functional size
Porcelain, stoneware, redware, and raku are the clays utilized by Craig Roberts (C.T.R.) in his creation of miniature and "regular-sized" artworks. Craig uses a vast variety of skills to achieve his completed creations. The pottery is whimsical, traditional and sometimes historical - from cobalt blue folk art inspired crocks and bowls , to red clay "ugly jugs" ; as well as porcelain jewelry and even Christmas tree ornaments... More creatively, one can find wizard jars, fancy bells and bowls, bird banks, face mugs, hand painted tree scenes, ornate queen cookie jars, and other one of a kind sculptural pieces.. Hairy Potter's Pottery uses calligraphy to make utilitarian pots "announce" an intended use as a container for "Coins", "Hopes", "Dreams", etc. - or to convey a memorable saying such as "prayer is a path where there is none".(as well as the tongue 'n cheek pieces that actually say "The Proverbial Pot to Piss In"...so one can't deny "having a pot to piss in", anymore)
MINIATURES - for dollhouses, collectors, museums....and for anyone who needs a unique, endearing gift .
Craig Roberts' miniature ceramics include crocks, jugs, mugs, vases, teapots, bowls, plates, pitchers, cookie jars, ugly jugs, urns, and even napkin holders, mostly in 1 inch scale. Some of these shapes are offered in ½ inch and ¼ inch scale, as well. Craig and a few other folks create hand painted scenic pots, face vases, and often add pure silver to pottery creating a wonderful "rustic elegance" that is very unusual and serendipitous. Other miniature creations include pottery wheels, kilns, tools, and other pottery studio accessories. ...and a lot of "rustic" furniture that evokes memories of Adirondack folk art pieces, Hobbit house furniture, or Fairy Garden items.
WHAT ELSE ???
...unbelievably detailed pottery studio workshops - so realistic and complete that a miniature person could work there.The wheels DO spin, there's clay in the bags, tiny tools...why not ?
Classes and workshops are offered in miniature pottery throwing, miniature pottery studio construction, and decorating techniques.
We now offer a newly designed miniature electric pottery wheel and miniature kilns that fire quickly on regular household current
Porcelain, jewelry or dollhouse accessories? The unique faces and scenic pendants can translate into wall pieces for dollhouses... or very different bolo ties; an amazing, wearable gift.... or ...porcelain pieces can also become elegant tree ornaments.
Miniatures are the ultimate gift for the "hard to buy for"....and of course "the pot to piss in" fits in that category, too...
"I don't even have a pot to piss in ! "…Now you can give Uncle Ned one -so he will stop saying it …maybe....
All of the pottery is hand thrown/sculpted and signed by the artist... (C.T.R. or whomever else may have made it...)
