Blue Willow Ceramic Collection . Spako ClaySpako Clay
Julie Spako’s grandmother’s Blue Willow collection has been a big influence on her ceramics. Spako loves how a story can be conveyed on something you use every day for a very practical purpose. Although she did not realize it at the time, it was the beginning of how important beautiful objects for everyday use would become to her, both as an artist and as a collector. Each piece is handmade, with a hand textured surface and hand painted glaze work- both inside and out. Due to her passion and attention to detail, Spako's work is sought after throughout the world. Each work is about 1/6-inch thickness. Individual dimensions will be listed in each product title in the drop-down menu. Handle with care!
Handmade in Austin, Texas by Spako Clay.
All of Spako Clay’s ceramics are made in her studio in Austin, Texas. Julie Spako works with high fire porcelain and stoneware that is fired to 2350 F. Each piece is a hand drawn original. She loves to create a balance between the complexity of drawing with the simplicity of hand-built pottery. All of her glazes are food safe, dishwasher and microwave safe.
Please note due to the true handmade nature of the work it is to be expected that measurements are approximate and slight variations from these numbers are normal and speak to the beauty of individual craftsmanship.
