Celadon Gaiwan by Charlie Collier

Hand Thrown in Devon

Approximate measurements: 9cm height x 10cm diameter. 200ml.

A beautiful gas fired stoneware Gaiwan made with iron rich Cornish clay. That has a classic and rustic form reminiscent of a honey pot shape, approachable and balanced in weight and proportion. Glazed with a bright celadon giving a fresh blue tone with a fine crackles contrasting nicely with the speckled, toasty clay around the inner rim. The surface feels smooth with a soft shine, very comfortable to handle and use. With this gaiwan its best to tilt the lid a little further back to pour with a greater flow. 

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. Charlie is now based at the Kigbeare Kiln Project near Okehampton, Devon.
