Tea Jar by Charlie Collier

Hand Thrown in Devon

Approximate measurements: 11cm height x 13cm width.

A satisfyingly formed stoneware storage jar from iron rich Cornish clay, offering a rich quality to the surface with subtle details within. The jar sitting tri-footed makes for a stable and interesting form finished with a substantial conical lid creating a well balanced silhouette.

We have two of these available, though very similar each are unique, therefore slight variations in shape, size and glaze will occur.

Made using a laurel wood ash glaze, formed with two different base clays resulting in variations of colour, one creating a calming satin green contrasting with silvery grey tones. And one creating a smooth texture of soft satin and a pure pale blue tone with greenish hints. Both vessel’s surfaces enhanced with deep textural detail, fine speckles and beautiful glassy crackle.

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.

Handwash recommended.
