Yunomi IV // by Nicola Gillis

Hand Thown in East Sussex

Measurements (approximate): 7.5cm height, 10cm width, 300ml

A beautiful hand thrown stoneware yunomi, flecked and speckled clay with a white matt glaze and hand painted black brown wash contrasting against loose linear resist strokes and drips, creating an overall visual effect that is bold, simplistic and confident. The dark wash is a luxurious glossy chocolate brown, that deepens towards its base, details of the speckled clay and toasted orange on the interior left showing complements the darker exterior. Smooth feel and comfortably grooved when holding, a great size, finished with a fine foot ring.

Nicola is a Brighton based Ceramicist. Beginning to create with clay in 2013, since then producing functional stoneware with a bold and simplistic approach that serves to create a rustic yet elegant style. Vessels that seek to bridge a connection between maker and user through the unique character of each handmade piece. 2021 sees Nicola currently exploring oxides, dark slips, found clay and local ash. Reflecting natural decay and erosion, exterior elements and ageing patinas out there in the natural world.

Each handmade and unique, therefore slight variations in shape, size and glaze will occur. Handwash recommended
