David & Margaret Nelson • Larkspur, CO • Crystal Porcelain

Colorado artists David and Margaret Nelson began their journey into the world of ceramics with the production of funtional stoneware. Before long, the dazzling beauty of crystals in nature, inspired them to study crystalline glazing on porcelain.

Time and experimentation yielded the sought after results.

From the jewel-like appearance of each finished piece, the " Jewelry of Pottery" was born.

 

Few ceramic artists work in this medium due to the difficutly and laborious processes required to produce these beautiful and unique pieces.

Every firing ends with a myriad of surprises-unpredictable and enchanting in its loveliness.

Though worthy of display as an object d'art, each item is also fully functional for use at a table, or as a vase for fresh flowers.

 

Every item is hand-thrown on a potters wheel by either David or Margaret Nelson in their home studio.

The studio is located in their basement near Larkspur, CO.

The glazes are custom made and fired in one of two Skutt kilns.
