In this section you will see all the types of pots we make as standard. Most of the pots that are shown are available in a range of different colours. Because the pots are fired in a gas kiln the colours can vary a little from those shown below. These are our most popular colours, but do enquire if you wish to have another one – we may be able to do it!
These pots have been biscuit fired to 1,000C. Then they have had organic material such as seaweed and grasses wrapped around the outside and packed in a pit, filled with wood and oxides . You get some interesting results caused by the smoke and the flames reaction to the oxides. Because these pots are low fired, they are not waterproof, but can be used as vases if a glass container is placed inside.
