I work with stoneware clay to produce a range of decorated functional food safe (oven, microwave, freezer proof) pots – jugs, bowls, mugs etc. Whilst each item is a one off (I have yet to master the science of mass production!) families of similar items can be produced.
I have successfully used various pieces for scented candles. By using soft soy wax & cosmetic quality fragrance oils – bowls, cups & goblets can be reclaimed for dining use once the candle is gone.
I also produce lustre glazed items – which are purely decorative – gift tags, ceramic decorated cards and candles.
