HP Bloomer makes functional porcelain tableware, high-fired with gas, electric, and/or wood.  It is often soda fired. Surface treatment includes glaze, and glazes layered with wax resist (the wax application makes the glaze resist sticking to a surface, thus the surface can have no glaze, or one glaze next to a spot where two glazes have been applied).

 Influences include pattern and color in design fields (fabric, architecture, graphic, interior), and Jean Widmer, Paul Klee, Annie Albers, Robert Rauschenberg, and Liubov Popova.
