Making this tableware set has been an eye opener. My training was in industrial design and my instincts are to design things which are repeatable, useable and relatively cheap. But (and it’s a big But) my experience tells me to produce pots people want, but also pots that I feel are expressive and useable. I’ve nearly finished this commission for C&F and it’s this work which has helped me understand my own motivation.

Tableware set

This commissioned tableware set (work in progress) is at the biscuit firing stage. It consists of two sizes of bowl, two plates and a cup. Glazed in satin white with wiped rims it has been a long time in coming. Sorry to C&F about the long wait for your wedding anniversary present!
