Potters like myself, have long been drawn to the elegance and apparent simplicity of the Moon Jar. The traditional form has its origins in Korea, during the Joseon period (1392-1910).
A moon jar is customarily made in two halves due to its size and these are joined together around the waist. They have been used to store wine or display flowers but also have a deeper more evocative history.
Korean pottery was much admired by the Mingei movement and the father of British studio pottery, Bernard Leach who gifted a white 'Full Moon' jar to Lucie Rie: that is now displayed in the British Museum.
A range of hand thrown and slab built 'rustic' table wares; hand crafted to the highest quality using high firing terracotta. Each piece is unique: capturing residual gestures, marks and moments, a celebration of the making process.
Fun, friendly and informal pottery workshops suitable for all abilities.
