Artist Statement
Stuart’s pots are hand-thrown in Royale porcelain on an electric potter’s wheel. Once a pot is thrown Stuart refines the shape by turning. Once a pot is completely dry it is bisque fired up to 1000 degrees. The next stage is to glaze the ware; as well as his neutral colour pallet consisting of pale green (celadon), a white glaze and a very dark, lustrous brown (tenmoku) Stuart has developed a new range of bright colours for 2015. The glaze firing reaches 1280 degrees making all the pots microwave, oven and dishwasher proof.


2014 has been a very busy year with the launch of the new website complete with online shop! To celebrate his new site Stuart has developed lots of new editions to his range including garlic pot, pestle and mortar and trumpet vase. Stuart has also developed a new range of bright glaze colours for 2015!
