All the pieces are hand thrown on a kick wheel, small variations in size and shape are part of this hand made process and the glazing is all by hand too so slight variations in tone and colour are a natural result. This adds to the unique character of each lovingly made item.

My perfect mug – I wanted to make a mug that I liked drinking tea from, that would look good in any kitchen and felt great to hold in the hand. It took many experiments to perfect this form – the edge of rim has to be right both in the thickness of the clay and the glaze that touches the lips. I love the unexpected toasting of the clay – as the silky smooth glaze and raw pot fuse in the kiln, some magic occurs, tingeing the clay with a warm rich hue.
With small changes in the amounts of colouring oxide this glaze will vary from duck egg blue to cloud grey or a hint of green in eau de nil – or a vibrant teal. This is the new ‘chun’ glaze a mix of whites, blues and purple speckling the surface with a bit of ‘hare’s fur’ going on.
In the same range are small bowls, dishes, teapots, extra large teacups and small medium and large jugs
