Azul Pottery started out with two salt and wood kilns with a kick wheel and not much else. Developing a style of his own, Alan started formulating shiny glazes of blues and bright colors, which have remained his trademark. The emphasize of the pottery became dinnerware place settings, as well as his highly decorative yet totally functional assortment of unique mugs, and mug accessories. Each functional piece of pottery is dishwasher, microwave, oven safe and lead-free. Alan travels extensively throughout the world visiting fellow potters and artists.
