When I saw the colours and shapes of Raphaela’s work, they were just what I was looking for to add to my autumn 2020 hedgerow inspired collection. These smokey blues and deep grey/black blues remind me of sloes and damsons and dark stormy skies. I love the unique shape of these cups too, they are extremely tactile.
All Raphaela’s pottery is made in her home studio in Devon on the potter’s wheel. She uses speckled stoneware clay, sourced from a UK family-run business in Stoke on Trent where she also gets all her glaze ingredients from. All her glazes have been created by experimenting and playing with different combinations, and they are all lead-free and food safe. The colours come from natural oxides from the earth such as copper (Green) and Tin (White) and she loves to play with the chemistry and see what happens. Everything is fired in her little electric kiln.
Available in sloe light blue and damson black blue
