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 Portbello Vases, named after their earthy mushroom colouring, are quiet yet confident in their presence. The intriguing nature of the pots makes them almost moreish, you want to keep exploring them with your eyes. They are satisfying but at the same time sit slightly off quilter with their surroundings.
We adore the unusual nature of these pieces, each one is individual yet they work incredibly well as a group. The glossy glazed upper of the pots sits wonderfully with the smooth raw clay bottom. Perfect for displaying stems, flowers or simply left empty as a sculptural object.
