Crackle Celadon Teabowl // by Charlie Collier
Hand Thrown in Devon
Measurements (approximate) 6cm height x 8.5cm width 120ml.
A beautiful footed teabowl with a great deal of functionality, these are very approachable and easy to use day to day. The form is of decent size for the western tea drinker. Created with iron rich Cornish clay, using a Celadon glaze that gives a cool jade appearance with tones of marine sitting under a fine granular glassy crackle and crazing that will enhance with use. These also have an amazing glossy shine and sparkle to them highlighting the form.
Each handmade and unique, therefore slight variations in shape, size and glaze will occur. Handwash recommended.
Charlie Collier creates functional hand thrown stoneware pieces that have an effortless simplicity and beauty to them made to enhance occasions and enrich our daily lives. Admiring the philosophy, that pots are ‘born, not made’ Charlie follows an organic approach to the creative process with the clay, paying particular detail to shape and form and instinctively knowing at which point a form is complete. He creates pieces that have a honest connection, energy and real character to them, something that you only feel with a handmade item. Previously honing his skills and experience at Whichford Pottery and alongside its founder, Jim Keeling and a group of Japanese potters from Bizen, to build and fire with a Anagama woodfiring Kiln at Wytham Woods in Oxford.
