Hello, welcome to my shop!

When packing and sending my pots I try to reuse / recycle as much of my packaging material as possible. Any plastic used has been recycled from parcels sent to me.

Love this


These little vases are all different!
I usually throw them at the end of a session after I have been making large batches of pots of the same size. I love the freedom of letting the clay dictate the shape of the vase, especially after the concentration of having to measure quantities of pots to ensure they are all the same size.
After they have been thrown and trimmed I painted the rim of the vase with a blue slip. The vases are then left to dry completely before their first firing in the kiln. Some of the vases have had their rims manipulated to make them oval shaped.
Once out of the kiln they are dipped in a white glaze and fired for a second time to 1270 degrees c. The reaction of the oxides in the slip with the white glaze turns the slipped areas blue.

They are perfect for small posies from the garden or even dried grasses. You could keep one in the kitchen, with a bunch of herbs for cooking, or in a group on your kitchen table.

The vases are glazed inside and out so are waterproof.
They can be cleaned in the dishwasher but washing by hand is kinder to your hand made pots!

Price is for one vase

Dimensions (approx) : 9.5cm height, 6.5cm width at base, 4cm width at rim.


Handmade on the potters wheel, these vases are freely thrown, usually after a day of repeat production throwing.
Each one is unique, to be enjoyed singly or as part of a group.
