Jack Welbourne - Speckled Teapot


Teapot from Cardiff-based ceramicist Jack Welbourne with a tenmoku glaze and speckled celadon glaze.

'I am informed by traditional techniques and values, in particular eastern ideas brought to the UK by Bernard Leach. Whilst working with this framework I am always looking to add a contemporary feel to my work though mark-making, form and application of glazes. I also work with locally sourced materials including clays and wood ash that I collect from the urban landscape I occupy.

Hand made objects have the potential to capture an energy, freshness and elemental tangibility that have been eroded in our society for years. I believe that your home can be a living work of art if you want it to be. With handmade pottery not only fulfilling a functional role but enriching and exciting with every use.'

Teapot holds 2-3 cups and measures approximately 11.5 cm in width and 12.5 cm in height.
