This Pie Funnel / Vent / Bird is handmade and thrown on the wheel in white earthenware clay. It is then carved and shaped before its first firing and the glazes added before its second firing in the kiln. The glaze is a rich turquoise glaze with a breakthrough of a golden brown.
It stands 3″ / 7.75cm high and 2 1/2″ / 6.5cm across the base.
It is dishwasher and food safe.
We are a husband and wife team, John and Gemma Swan, and make all our pottery in beautiful and inspiring Cornwall, towards Lands End. We use white earthenware clay and John throws most of our pottery on the wheel. Our distinctiveness comes in the vibrant colours we glaze the pottery with – turquoise, vibrant green and an orangey red. All with a breakthrough of a golden brown, which harks back to Cornish pottery of the past. Our range of pottery is mostly functional with a few decorative items as well. We like to make pottery that is used, cherished and enjoyed.
