This piece is absolutely beautiful, and I love it; it looks, feels, and even sounds so lovely. Seller shipped the item very promptly, although it was the Christmas holidays; thanks again Vanessa. The pot was very carefully bubble-wrapped and arrived safe and sound.

About

Sawdust Fired Pots

Working from my studio in Cellardyke in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland I make sawdust fired pots.

I first saw a sawdust firing in a demonstration many years ago by a potter called Gabriele Koch who makes large hand built pieces. Since then I have developed my own technique of using slip as a resist and for texture. My pots have also become smaller so they can be held in the hand as they have a tactile nature and sit well either on their own or in groups. Each firing is different depending on the weather and type of wood used so you can never be quite sure how a firing is going to work out. I have a fantastic source of sawdust from a local wheelwright who provides me with a huge range of different types. So I have recently been experimenting with elm, cherry and sycamore along with using oak and pine.

The inspiration for my work comes from stones found along the sea shore. I love the different mix of colours and shapes you find together which I try to reflect with my pots.
