Ceramic Bisque Slip Plate

22.00

Based in the rural countryside of Carmarthenshire Tim Lake produces his beautiful ceramic tableware. As a potter Tim is influenced by a vast array of cultures and objects, his pieces hold a reference to a long line of Japanese and Eastern influenced pots but on the other hand they also seem full of life with contemporary input. It is a difficult task to come across pots that are truly alive and playful yet raw and earthy, Tim strikes that balance perfectly. The St Agnes clay that performs such an important role in creating the rough textural finish in his work is then confronted with the painterly slip that is applied onto the surface, which appears light and effortless. Tim works with the very traditional clays, slips and firings that are common practice in studio pottery but his ceramics hold on tightly to a progressive movement forward bearing in mind contemporary needs and aesthetics.

These Bisque Slip Plates are wild in their colouring. Bright, rich and full of character, each plate is entirely unique. We adore the fired colouring, it reminds us of scorched earth. Every plate has individual markings, Tims artistic flair is shown off beautiful across the surfaces. These pieces are perfect for morning toast, used as side plates or even displayed as sculptural items around the home.
