Woodfired Mug by Charlie Collier
Hand Thrown in Devon
Measurements (approximate) 11.5cm height x 8.5cm width 450ml.

A super satisfyingly large tankard style stoneware mug, created with iron rich Cornish clay, intentionally left unglazed on the exterior, as the wood firing creates a natural flow and gradient of vibrant and warming tones, toasted orange, browns and a detail of natural speckled ashing due to long firing all with a tactile feel. The interior glazed in a cool jade celadon, offering brightness and fine glassy crackle.

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.
