These straight sided bowls are handmade in Ledbury, Herefordshire, by Stuart Houghton. Stuart uses very high quality porcelain hand thrown on his potter’s wheel. Once a pot is thrown, Stuart refines the shaped by turning. This involves putting a semi-dried pot back onto the wheel and using sharp tools to remove clay in certain areas. Stuart prefers to limit turning so that the ridges that naturally occur when clay is used on the wheel, remain. Once a pot is completely dry it has a bisque firing up to 1000 degrees centigrade. The next stage is to glaze the ware and fire to 1280 C so that the clay has almost turned to glass or vitrified. We stock this design in two different colour variations: tenmoku and white. The bowls look really good when holding food; olives and snacks look great in them as do sauces; maybe creme fraiche in the tenmoku version and pesto in the white colourway.
