Experimental Tea Bowl by Charlie Collier
Hand Thrown in Devon
Approximate measurements: 4cm height x 7cm diameter, 45ml

When experimenting with glazes, Charlie often enjoys throwing several footed bowls instead of using small tiles to observe the finished glazes. This way giving a more accurate impression of how the glaze will act on the surface of a vessel.

These experiments result in excitingly unique tiny tea bowls perfect for Gong Fu style tea sessions.
This one is made from iron rich Cornish clay with a Kaki glaze, woodfired.

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.
