Prescott Hill Pottery is the home of Betsy Levine’s clay studio, gas-fired soda kiln, and gallery space.
Betsy makes useful pots (tableware, storage jars and vases) as well as evocative vessels in high-fire stoneware and porcelain. Most of the pots are fired in the soda kiln, and also in wood firings twice a year.
The pots are fired to cone 10 (2350 °F). Unless specially noted, you can assume that they are vitreous, food-safe, oven-safe and dishwasher-safe.
“I have always been interested in artifacts, in ancient historical records, symbols on bowls, marks on tablets, the very earliest impulses to put our ‘prints on the sands of time,’ to decorate the implements of necessity, and thereby to create magic in their use. Placing marks on a surface feels like a profound act of humanity.”
