Artisan is a group of 2 ceramicists who work independantly of each other. Whilst having different styles, they share a love of simple, hand-made, utilitarian ceramics, so have come together to share the experience of online selling.
Emeline Watchorn's work is all hand moulded from porcelain and then decorated using simple neutral patterns that occur naturally by either spattering slip onto her pieces or using a crackle glaze that is then tea-stained to exagerate the effect. She also moulds thin delicate porcelain heart dishes with different hand printed messages on them. The pieces are modern but soft and gentle in their form. She is also a painter and creates textural and light filled oil seascapes and still lifes which she is also now selling on this site. They are all original works and are available to buy as unframed canvases.
Sarah Field from Sarah Field Ceramics has been throwing in porcelain for over 18 years and her pieces are simple and elegant whilst staying commited to being utilitarian, usable pieces. Her glazing is usually off-white or celadon although she has recently embarked on a new journey with colour experimenting with greens, deep pink, pale pinks and turquoises. She also works in stoneware but applies the same ethos of pure, simple forms.
All their work is handmade by using various different techniques including hand-throwing, hand-moulding or hand slip-casting.. Their passion is that everything they produce be beautiful, original and handmade.
As every piece is hand crafted so they are all unique and therefore may vary slightly from the image shown.
