Making a Southwest Clock or Thermometer

The process begins every morning when Marty and Monique, in their studio, start with natural terracotta clay that they form, by hand, into their various designs. The clay then dries, is sanded and fired in a kiln to 1850 degrees for 8 hours, hardening the pieces to an almost indestructible product. Each piece is an original because no two are exactly the same. Such is the nature of handmade products. Not all are absolutely flawless. Some, to the layman’s eye, might have a teeny imperfection such as an identation, a slight variation in color or rarely, an odd fingerprint, but they have a quality and style no machine can duplicate. They are imprinted and hand painted. Individually boxed with battery included. Quartz movement.
