According to Ceramics Monthly, approximately 75% of potters glaze their pieces at mid-range temperatures—and this complete studio guide eliminates the guesswork from the popular process. Along with hundreds of recipes, it explores mixing, application, specific firing and cooling cycles, and all the factors that make glazes work. See how to boost colors with intense stains, washes, and underglazes; achieve stunning results that equal high-fire glazing, and expand the frontiers of mid-range with tips for wood, salt, and soda firing.

I got two lovely pieces from Bungalow Potter and really love ’em! BP has some really beautiful items–and I really enjoy the website. My mug and bowl in my casa have added some much needed color. LOVE IT!
I Picked up this beautiful little pitcher from Stæven Lewis Frey of Bungalow Potter last week. Oh my word. It has brightened my whole house. Pictures don’t do it justice. So impressed with the weight and quality. It’s beauty blesses me daily. In fact, I wanted one of everything….every piece I saw in Staeven’s studio was purely lovely. Handmade may cost more, but you get what you pay for.
I used to not like pottery. It was pretentious, and not practical. I feel like I’ve discovered pottery all over again–that’s practical, humble, and I can use it every day and not feel like I have to manage a hedge fund to have it either.
I own some pottery from Bungalow Potter! I came upon this business online, now I cant stop purchasing things! It makes such a great unique gift that lasts a lifetime and there are SO many choices too. It is all handmade from beginning to end. The customer service is very personal, straight from the artist himself. He is quick to respond to questions and very friendly.
Being friends with Stæven already, I always was asking for lessons–but couldn’t believe it when I actually had one. It was unbelievable. I had no clue what I was doing, but made pieces out of clay–I’d never thought I could. It was more like therapy–or playing–than work!
I came to make a mug for a birthday, and ended up making three pieces! Stæven made it easy to understand each stage, making everything fun and never overwhelming–walking me through every stage, and letting me express my ideas–helping me get there. AND I love my pieces!
