These fantastic stoneware tumblers are hand thrown and painted by Laura Huston, a potter based in Norfolk. The dark blue ceramic tumblers epitomise the beauty and individuality of handmade goods. Each one is unique in its shape and colourings, adding to their rustic charm and character. Perfect for your morning cup of coffee or Tea. Laura uses a technique called, Sgraffito to add the pattern design to her work. Sgraffito involves the carving of a pattern into the "slip" to reveal the natural clay colour beneath. The slip being the liquid mixture of clay that Laura hand paints on to the leather-like hard clay before the first bisque fire and the addition of a semi-matt transparent glaze. Needless to say, there is a great deal of craftsmanship and work that goes into the making of each of these beautiful handmade tumblers. Made exclusively for Such & Such, the design of the tumblers features a classic shape with a simple and beautiful pattern. Laura's work explores subtle variations of form, pattern and colour taking inspiration from pieces of antiquity as well as from everyday life.
