My handmade pottery is on display in the pop-up window of Studio Nine in Totnes this week. A very exciting opportunity! From the 5th to the 10th April, I have the whole window to myself to display my handcrafted work, old and new, in all its colourful glory. So, if you're a Totnes local - feel free to have a browse!
All the pottery shown is hand-thrown on the wheel by me from my studio in Torquay. And piped with wet clay using cake decorating techniques. The pottery is bisque fired, hand-painted with pottery stains and underglazes, waxed and readied for glazing. Finally, the ceramics are finished off by glazing in satin glazes, with a food safe clear glaze inside and glaze fired.
The work is displayed in 4 colour blocks - pink, peach, green and blue; as I thought this would look more cohesive. There is a mixture of products from candlesticks and candle holders, to Vases, to mugs and a teapot, to ring holders and jewellery jars.
The majority of the work is in my piped style; some with piped bows; frilly star shapes; climbing vines and leaves; shells and dots. Some pieces including mugs, vases and teapots have piped feet in the the style of claw feet (popular during the English Renaissance and forward) which raises them slightly.
