Please Note: What appears to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

   Copper Penny Glaze is influenced by the amount of iron in the clay as well as the formula of the glaze.  The range of color is dependent on the atmosphere of the firing in the kiln.  During the early stages of firing, at 1600°F, we purposely control the furnace to burn inefficiently creating carbon inside the kiln.  The reaction of carbon, over a period of several hours, with the iron in the clay will create warm tones in the glaze and iridescent or opalescent qualities to the surface.  The presence of wood ash coming in contact with the glaze accentuates the glaze with flashes of apple green and yellow tones to deeper brown shades on areas of the pot.  The name copper penny was chosen after many customers, over the years, commented that it looked like the surface of a penny.
