Hand Thrown in Devon
Measurements (approximate) 11.5cm height x 8.5cm width 450ml.
A super satisfying large tankard style stoneware mug, for plenty of Autumnal and Winter brews! Created with iron rich Cornish clay, using Black Tenmoku glaze, which are particularly striking, the iron rich glaze creates a real depth on the surface where copper and gold speckles can be seen, a complementary red oxide rust tone sits around the lip and at the edging of the handle, with that these also have an amazing glossy shine to them highlighting the form, ridges and bands in the body of the mug.
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.
