Inspired by the still life paintings of Morandi, and by the colours of the sky, the seashore, precious stones, plants and trees, my vessels are thrown on the wheel using white earthenware clay, and then glazed with a smooth semi-matt earthenware glaze of my own formulation with the texture of eggshell. The interior glaze is transparent and safe for food/drink.
Items can be bought singly, or why not create your own 'Still Life' display of a group of vessels in complementary colours.
I use a wide palette of colours, some subtle, others more vivid, depending on season and inspiration. Some examples are: duck egg, aqua, china blue, powder blue, violet, lavender, cornflower, slate blue, olive green, pistachio green, jade green, leaf green, evergreen, primrose yellow, lemon yellow. Warm rich colours are berry, rose pink, shell pink, orange, heather. Autumnal browns, and monochrome shades of dove grey, slate grey, charcoal and ivory are also available.
Please note that variations can occur in each new batch of glaze and each glaze firing, so it will not be possible to exactly replicate the colours shown here; they are close approximations only.
