Red Shino Chawan by Charlie Collier

Hand Thrown in Devon

Approximate measurements: 8cm height x 10cm diameter.

A carefully formed wood fired stoneware Chawan made with iron rich Cornish clay, with an exquisite red shino glaze offering a smooth surface of warming tones, rusty tans and cherry reds with a metallic shine. A large area of blue grey crackle with yellowish and mossy tones cascades across one side and continuing over the lip onto the deep red walls of the inside. The subtle flared form holds so comfortably in the hand with a smooth surface yet a tactile granular feel. Gentle rounded base with neat foot. Well balanced in weight and proportion.

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.
