Jack Olive's beautiful pottery uses a distinctive multi-glazing technique and has a very unique look. He discovered that rich, layered ceramic glazes are particularly useful in creating a sense of depth in design.
These glazes also require specially formulated materials that respond to the lower, energy-saving temperatures at which Jack fires. His left-brain analytical scientist mind melded with his right-brain artist one resulting in the development of fine-bodied stoneware and tight-fitting glazes used to create durable, useful works of art that are dishwasher- and microwave-safe.
