The Barnacle shell range is inspired by the masses of tiny crustaceans observed on Scottish beaches, with their ridged shells and feeding holes. They are containers of light and embody these beautiful characteristics of porcelain : whiteness, translucency and smoothness. Fine throwing and turning enable me to make pots that appear delicate yet have inherent strength once fired. Pots are fully glazed, suitable for fruit or displaying flowers, hand washable.
Barnacle Shell bowls – full round bowls thrown on the wheel and decorated by carefully boring through the porcelain to create masses of ridged holes – stretching the porcelain little by little.
