Kari Radasch uses Radasch Red Earthenware Pottery Body, a terra cotta pottery body, and simple forming techniques including pinching, coiling and the rolling of slabs to create her functional pots. She then covers them with white slip before overpainting with glazes. The surfaces are often embellished with applique, knobs, handles, and screen printed decals. Both her pots and their surfaces are inspired by gardens, mosaics, and contemporary textiles.
