Chun Jar // by Charlie Collier

Hand Thrown in Devon

Measurements (approximate) 12cm height x 10cm width 420ml.

A small and perfectly formed stoneware storage jar from iron rich Cornish clay, wood fired with an exquisitely beautiful Chun glaze offering a gradient of aqua blues, light green hues and purple blushes. A depth of tone can be caught in the sunlight, showing a delicate speckling and fine crackle, together with contrasting unglazed areas of toasted orange tone. A traditional form with wider, modestly domed lid, creating a well balanced silhouette.

One-off piece. 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.
