I’ve recently returned to potting full-time and thought I’d share some new pots with you. Here are some examples of yunomi, which I love making. Each one is absolutely unique. The form comes from Japan and its tea ceremonies. The yunomi is used to take an informal drink of tea…or, indeed, just to enjoy your favourite tipple!
It’s important, to me, that these pots are tactile, so there are glazed and unglazed areas. I also blend together different clays and materials to make the body, which I want you to be able to appreciate through your senses of sight and touch as you hold and use them. These are pots to connect you with your senses and daily life. Pots that will gradually reveal themselves to you the more you use them.
