Description

Every vessel is handmade and time is taken to ensure only the very best pieces enter my shop. Each is a masterpiece.

 

Each piece is birthed in fire. To acheive the rich colouring and swirls the delicate vessel is literally burnt amongst carefully chosen combustible materials for a number of hours. The fuels are selected for their mineral content that impart soft yet striking colours to form a patina over the vessel during the firing. Copper oxide might give delicate blushes of pink while the smoke itself creates a striking black contrast to the light clay body.

 

This romantic firing technique creates absolutely individual effects on each ceramic piece, and cannot be predicted or repeated.

 

Each piece is a wonderful surprise and would make the perfect gift for someone special.
