This teapot feels like a fantastic example of our collaboration and a huge accomplishment. (I do feel a bit guilty that James has the hardest job in actually making it and I get to do the fun, easy part.)
It is fairly small at 700 ml and unglazed, like the “naked” set we made last year for the BCB. It is made from pigmented stoneware and the motif is inlaid. We are hoping to have a small range of unglazed porcelain ware available at Ceramic Art London in April.
More of our teapots here.
We’ve finished the two teasets which we’re sending to Stoke for the British Ceramics Biennial. The one on the top shelf is mainly unglazed (“naked”) with minimal abstract decoration on coloured stoneware clay. The one on the lower shelf is porcelain, mainly glazed, in three neutral colours.
We’re totally delighted with them – the naked set is dynamic and strong and the porcelain set is so refined and serene.

These are some of the pieces we’ve made for the British Ceramics Biennial. We’re calling this work “naked” because it is largely unglazed, hence the matt finish.They are obviously very influenced by our cylindrical forms and we’re very excited about them!
