Stylish shallow serving dish
Lovingly hand-thrown from a white stoneware clay, each dish is individually signed and with a glazed footring.. A wide shallow bowl, the inner surface is a floating blue green glaze made largely from reclaimed slate dust, from Honister Slate Mine in Cumbria. This interesting found material is harvested from a sludge pool outside the mine, it is dried, weighed, sieved and mixed with wood ash, clay and copper carbonate. Fired to 1240*C in an electric kiln, the base glaze is a modern take on the tradition of shino glazes, which originated in Japan around 1550AD.....
Working with clay is profoundly meditative and all my pots are made with love, care and attention to detail. Individuality is not something I strive too hard to eliminate, I like to create families of work of similar size, around a general form and glaze combination. The colour molecules will always dance and settle a little differently each time, if they didn't there would not be such joy in opening the next glaze kiln or in knowing the vessel you are drinking from is truly unique....
