"Our Fat Lava pottery pieces are renowned for their vivid colors, ranging from fiery reds and oranges to deep blues and earthy browns. The glazes, are applied generously and often dripped or layered, creating a three-dimensional effect that resembled molten lava. This organic and sculptural quality makes each piece a unique work of art." Otto Gerharz Jnr.
