Gas fired white stoneware, tenmoku + iron wash line
H 9.6cm, dia. 8.2cm
A hand thrown and turned beaker. Made from white stoneware clay and coated in tenmoku glaze with an iron wash line detail, then gas reduction fired up to ~1280°C for around 12 hours. The tenmoku breaks on the edges to give lovely rich orange details, complementing those of the iron wash line towards the base.
About David Stonehouse
'My work is informed by the inherent beauty of materials, a sense of place, and innovative art and design, both contemporary and historical. My practice is defined by an evolving personal contemporary aesthetic rooted in artisanal craftsmanship.'
'There are two strands to my ceramics: one-off decorative and sculptural vessels, which I use as conceptual vehicles for exploring the ideas that underpin my practice; and domestic ware which seeks to enhance the pleasure in everyday rituals.'
'My pieces are the product of an ongoing exploration of the relationship between form and surface, and function and detailing. Through my wheel-thrown vessels I’m looking to create objects that draw the user in to look closer and savour a given moment. My process is to do more with less, to scale back, and let each element and material speak – I strive to balance simplicity, refinement and meaning in each piece. I tend to use a restricted palette of materials, and allow them to be at the forefront of each piece, often celebrating the contrast between raw clay and the fluidity of glazed surfaces.'
'I’m a Cambridge-based artist and designer-maker. After gaining a first-class degree in Silversmithing & Jewellery, I was studio assistant to RCA Professor David Watkins, and then completed an MA in Product Design at Central Saint Martins. I spent 25+ years in international design before returning to my craft roots.'
