candle holder

The joint venture with Soil and Cobo is still on till the end of the month, if you are interested in contemporary pottery come and take a look!

For me, these candle shades are like a father and son having a conversation with each other.

These candle shades are unglazed white stoneware, wheel thrown and then distorted, they are then carefully hand carved to get the openings for light.

Everytime I see this box it just brings a smile across my face.  It just made me think of a happy oyster.  It will make a brilliant place for storing all the little treasure that would become pearls over time.

A selection of pottery works produced from the studio (Chris, King + the students) will be available at Mountain Folkcraft.  All the works are handmade and unique.
