Tenmoku Teapot by Charlie Collier

Hand Thrown in Devon

Approximate measurements: 13cm height x 20cm handle to spout. 800ml.

A wood fired stoneware Teapot with a traditional form, skilfully crafted with great care. An excellent weight and proportion. Styled with a back handle and tapered filtered spout, with a great pouring action and a pointed finial on the lid. Glazed with a tenmoku giving a dark blackish blue tone blending with mossy greens and golden flecks, the speckled texture and purplish colour of the icon rich clay complementing perfectly. The feel of the piece is one of robust weight and substance with a smooth surface and soft shine. Very comfortable to handle and a joy to use.

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.
