Black pot

Labrador

All of our ceramics are handmade from white stoneware clay at our studio in Sheffield. First, we throw a straight-sided cylinder, once it’s leather-hard, we “turn” it, carving the narrower portion of the pot and giving it a nice foot to sit on.

We finish with our hand-carved maker’s mark — the Labrador twig — and coat it twice; once in a black glaze and again in clear matte. The glazes react together during firing to give it the distinctive textural quality you see here and a beautiful smooth and satiny finish.

The black pot is available in two sizes — small and medium. With a different ‘tide mark’ from the clear glaze on each, they make a great pair.

  • Material: Hand-thrown stoneware with black and clear glazes
  • Origin: Sheffield, UK
  • Dimensions: The sizes are determined by the weight of clay that we start with, 1lb 6oz for small and 1lb 10oz for medium. Their finished sizes vary but do just let us know if you’d like a set and we’d be happy to find you a good match.
  • Note: All of our ceramics are handmade and show subtle variances that make them akin to unique pieces. This item is not dishwasher safe, please wash by hand.
  • UK shipping £3.95 or free on orders over £75. Visit our shipping page for more info on returns and international orders.
