Leighan Thomas is a contemporary potter based in Oxfordshire. Her approach to making reflects her tastes in quietly muted, simply functional pieces. An exploration into clay makes Leighan's work ever playful with a grown up aesthetic. Raw earthiness meets smooth lively glazes in an amalgamation of process and ideas.
These Shore Vases have a wonderfully textural element to their exterior. The simple modern form is offset by the rugged speckling on the surface. To us there is a shoreline influence in the white of the sea washing over the rocks, to others there may be different influences that come to mind. The ambiguity of these vases makes them ever changing and open to be placed anywhere in the home.
