Alaskan clay pottery (ceramics) are created using slip casting, a very fluid blend of several clays is poured into a plaster mold. The mold absorbs water from the outer portion of the clay, causing it to become viscous. Then the mold is tipped to pour out the still-fluid center, leaving a rind still within the mold. After further drying, the object is removed from the mold and fired.
The marbleized effect in Alaska Clay pieces are achieved by simultaneously pouring two different slips into the mold. In these products the teal color derives from commercial clay obtained outside Alaska, and the brown color comes from the famous Alaskan clay, Bootlegger Cove Clay.

The Bootlegger Cove Clay receives its fame not from its use by potters, but because its existence beneath parts of the city of Anchorage caused great damage during the 1964 earthquake. Persistent ground shaking caused the clay to liquefy and thereby lose its strength. Subsequently, parts of Turnagain Heights, L Street, Fourth Avenue and Government Hill slid downward on a potter's "slip" of Bootlegger Cove Clay.
