new ceramics

This week we got a delivery of beakers and jugs in from ceramic artist Julia Smith. Julia works from her studio in Ardersier near Inverness producing hand-thrown earthenware, which she then decorates with leadfree glazes & decals. I decided to go handle-less for these as they fit so beautifully in the hand that handles just seemed unnecessary. I think they would be perfect for drinking whisky out of (complete with water jug) or perhaps for milk & sugar (the beakers could easily double as a bowl).

I always love to see how things are made & Julia has a fabulous online video giving an insight into her process of making  - which you can see here. Well worth a watch! 

beakers £17, jugs £19
