Nuka Gaiwan by Charlie Collier
Hand Thrown in Devon
Approximate measurements 9.5cm height x 6.5cm width. 190ml

A beautiful stoneware Gaiwan made with iron rich Cornish clay. That has a classic and rustic form reminiscent of a honey pot shape, approachable and well balanced in weight and proportions.

Wood fired with a bright Nuka glaze giving a pale green surface with moss green flecks and purple blushes, the overall appearance seems to capture a lot of movement within, with the clay colour contrasting satisfyingly.

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.

Each handmade and unique, therefore slight variations in shape, size and glaze will occur. Handwash recommended.
