Fire and salt are the essential elements in the creation of Mr. Harvey’s unique glazes. His kiln is completely filled with fire as the temperature approaches 2300 degrees. Common salt is thrown into the kiln and is vaporized by the intense heat. The vapors are carried throughout the kiln by the swirling flames and react with the surface of the pots to produce a very durable textured glaze.
The gallery is open every day year-round except major holidays. Hours are 11am to 6pm Monday-Saturday, 1-5pm Sunday, and until 8pm on most First Fridays. Call 423-267-9214, visit www.intowngallery.com or www.facebook.com/intowngallery.
