|Bede Clarke Teapot $360|
wood-fired stoneware (8" x 10.5" x 5.5")
My goal in making this work has been to create quiet, simple pots, which like a good meal, leave a healthy, full feeling. Pots like these have been my constant companions for forty years. They are forms and surfaces that I never grow tired of. They are rooted in ceramic history; yet, I hope they reflect a personal and individual quality of feeling. Above all, these pots are intended to be good to live with and interact with on a daily bases. They are made with others in mind.
