EricMT is a collaboration between Eric and Heather Timmerman. Eric is a young man with autism, and Heather is his mom. Eric’s dad, Joe, also helps out wherever needed.
We begin by sharing in the process of creating original designs. Then we make custom stamps based on our designs, and we press the stamps into soft clay. We fire the clay in our home studio kiln, apply black underglaze for a distressed look, and then fire again. If needed, we touch up the underglaze and fire a third time. We leave the final stoneware unglazed for an earthy texture.
