Beautifully crafted stoneware teapot, made from Cornish clay glazed with a blue grey ash and decorated with a loosely brushed iron oxide wash.
By using a wax resist technique Jack has achieved a stunning effect over the smooth surface creating a spotted pattern of blue greys that contrast against the dark rich wash that ranges from tones of olive greens to rusty oranges and deep black, full of complex qualities and depth. The interior is a soft satin blue grey with fine speckles and crackle. A satisfying balance of weight and proportion is created through a classic globe style form that rises to a gentle domed lid with a comfortable back handle and balanced spout that enjoys a great pouring action. A small size teapot, 1-2 cups, making it perfect for a solo drinker or plus one.
Each handmade and unique, therefore slight variations in shape, size and glaze will occur. Handwash recommended.
Jack Welbourne produces an array of hand thrown stoneware tableware, following traditional techniques and principles fused with Eastern ideas and approaches made popular by Bernard Leach. From this Jack achieves a unique and contemporary style by way of his mark making, application and overall form. Creating work with an individual energy that enriches its functional use.
In 2017 Jack set up One Wall Studio, all work is produced from his studio there.
