Holding something handmade allows you to connect with the beauty of nature. In Japan tea bowls are used in the ritual Tea Ceremony which represents harmony, balance and tranquility. The Dorset teabowl fits perfectly in your hand while you enjoy a cherished moment in your day.
The teabowls are dipped in a white clay slip and by sweeping through the wet surface with a handmade bristle tool I make decorative marks inspired by the reed beds near Chesil Beach, Dorset. The subtle decoration reveals itself through the glaze in the firing.
Each tea bowl is unique and glaze colour and melt is dependent on where they are placed in my reduction kiln during the firing.
