'From my hands to yours, I hope the natural feel of fired earth in your hands gives you a moment to pause and enjoy.'
Inspired by the natural colours and textures of the earth, Naked Clay Ceramics is a collection of quiet, tactile, minimal style tableware and homeware in black stoneware and white porcelain by Carla Sealey.
Using a combination of handbuilding and slip casting, everything is made by hand in her studio in Bedfordshire.
'At high temperatures the clay dances in the kiln. When they leave the kiln these pieces don’t conform to the symmetrical perfection and uniformity found in factory made items. Each is individual and unique.'
'The pieces are fired with no glaze on the outside so that the feel of the natural, fired clay can be appreciated. I hope that tactile connection brings an opportunity to pause, breathe and savour a small moment in the hustle and bustle of life.'
