Standard glazing options use one solid color. Choose from our white, clear, dove gray or light blue glazes. 

Slip Rabbit uses cone 6 Grolleg porcelain exclusively. If you wish to learn about the painterly and colorful surface treatments that are the trademark of our studio, please sign up for one of the Painterly World of Pigments Workshops or ask us to add that to your CYOW lesson plan. All of our glazes and surface treatments when fired are food-safe, microwave and dishwasher safe. 

All workshops are private lessons with ceramic artist and UW Art faculty, Timea Tihanyi.
