Each Tapered Mug is thrown on the potter’s wheel using stoneware clay, then decorated with coloured slips and fired in an electric kiln. A transparent glaze is then applied before firing again to a high temperature, which vitrifies the clay and produces a wonderful depth of colour. Although designs are repeatable, each piece has its own unique aspects, celebrating the touch of the maker. Due to the nature of the materials and processes used the size and finish of pieces will vary slightly. Available in four designs Green Circle, Grey Circle, Spotted Circle or Seeds.
Green Circle, Grey Circle, Spotted Circle
Microwave and Dishwasher safe, although hand washing is advised for this product. Avoid thermal shock.
The Tapered Mug is part of a collection of ceramics which draws inspiration from the simple beauty, and intriguing surfaces of old gardening tools gathered from my grandfather’s shed. Quiet thrown forms are decorated with slips in a range of abstract designs, with vessels providing a canvas for mark making.
