A bit of colour for your Friyay . . . This satisfying stack of little bowls is heading west - very west! - all the way to British Columbia Canada. I was lucky enough to go to that beautiful part of the world a few years ago to visit one of my bestest friends who emigrated there. It was such a fun trip. We nearly saw a bear! (Other walkers in the Forrest kept telling us about the bear- be careful theres a bear ahead - but alas we never had our encounter) Do you know that there is such a thing…

Handthrown Stoneware Dinnerset in Calm Seas Blue Glaze

A gorgeous way to enjoy your dippy egg.   I made these sturdy little egg cups on my wheel using stoneware clay. Once shaped, they were dried, fired to 1000 degrees, decorated and glazed, then fired again to 1240 degrees.   Individually decorated with under glaze and then painted with a pale sea green or white semi-opaque glaze which lets the natural beauty of the clay shine through.
