Hand Thrown in Devon
Approximate measurements: 12cm width incl. handle x 8cm height. 390ml.
A very fine cup, carefully and skilfully made, with great attention to the small details in this piece. Stoneware with a celadon glaze. Giving glimpses of subtle blue and pale green hues with an even speckle and fine glassy crackle within the glaze, becoming more pronounced with use. Fine tapered handle, thin lip and tankard shape to the body of the cup, quite rustic in shape yet modern in style.
Jacob has been working in Ceramics for over 12 years with previous residences spent at Leach Pottery and Boscean Pottery in Cornwall. Estabilishing his personal studio based in the peaceful, secluded countryside near the Devon Somerset border since 2014. From there, he creates highly skilled pieces with the upmost care and dedication to the craft. Drawing from traditional Asian styles, methods and philosphy. Also informed by his personal love of Puerh, Oolong and Dark teas. Working with selected local clays and creating unique glazes often celadon and also on occasion, porcelain. All culminating in the realisation of some very fine contemporary teawares striving for a timeless beauty.
Please Note: Each cup is unique due to the individual nature of a handthrown piece, the cup you receive may not necessarily be the exact piece pictured.
