Tenmoku Teapot by Charlie Collier
Hand Thrown and Wood Fired in Devon
Approximate measurements: 14cm height x 20cm width (handle to spout). 1 litre (3-4 cups).

It’s a stunning teapot formed with great skill, care and attention to detail. Crafted with a traditional globe style body, good capacity and balanced proportions with a comfortably shaped handle and very fine spout, pouring excellently.

Created with iron rich Cornish clay, using black Tenmoku glaze creating a real depth on the surface where copper and gold speckles can be seen with a red oxide rusty tone that bands the edges and areas of the handle and spout. The glaze gives an amazing glossy shine that highlighting the form of the teapot.

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.
