Every piece is hand-thrown on a potter’s wheel from a ball of clay, and each handle is pulled and applied individually. After a process of air-drying, the pots are bisque-fired in a kiln to a temperature of 990 C. Each pot is then decorated by brush and dipped into a glaze. The pots are returned to the kiln where they are fired for the final time to a temperature of 1218 C. From a ball of clay to a finished pot can take between three to four weeks.
Circles and Colours
Circles feature a lot in how the world turns. The more you look for them, the more you’ll notice their beauty and simplicity in the most unassuming of places. They are part of folklore, nature, and, of course, our day to day lives. Colours affect the way we feel. A favourite colour can be uplifting, inspiring or comforting. On a cold winter morning a touch of colour in the landscape can instantly change the scene and brighten the mood. A mug of tea or coffee can help start a day, end a day, or simply bring a welcome pause to the day. And with your own favourite colour encircling that welcome pause, you can make that moment your own.
