Naked Clay Ceramics

Naked Clay Ceramics is a collection of handmade minimal style tableware in Porcelain and Black Stoneware that celebrate the beauty and feel of unglazed clay in it’s fired state.

I am inspired by the natural colours and textures of the earth and working with clay was a natural progression from my previous career as an Environmental Scientist. Using my qualifications in Geology and Chemistry I worked for 15 years protecting the water environment from pollution.

Everything is made in my studio on an old plant nursery in Bedfordshire.

Liquid clay, my own recipe, is poured into plaster moulds that I make myself. Solid clay is rolled and formed into plates, bowls and handles for the mugs. Each piece is sanded smooth before and after the first firing. For practicality and comfort I glaze the insides and rims and add a makers mark on the outside. The pieces are fired and sanded a third time resulting in a matt, velvet finish for the stoneware or a silky shimmer for the porcelain.

Everything is high fired in the kiln to a temperature that ensures they are vitrified and nonporous even when unglazed. At these high temperatures the clay dances and there is some natural movement of the clay in the kiln. When they leave the kiln these pieces will not conform to the symmetrical perfection and uniformity found in factory made items, but will each be individual and unique.

From my hands to yours I hope you enjoy the natural feel of fired earth in your hands.
