I quite like experimenting with colour, its funny how often alternative colours or shades makes a piece which have been made the same look so different. I particularly love it at fairs when someone comes up to me and says ‘I’ve never seen such vibrant colours on pottery before’.
Some little part of me loves how colour can totally change people’s perception of what handmade pottery can be. With that in mind you may have seen me posting photos over on Twitter or Facebook of a certain orange shade.
The ice cream cups are glazed in plain Pumpkin and the large mug you can see has a black slip applied and then glazed to give a kind of ‘tiger stripe’ effect.
I’ve found this glaze really divides opinion, kinda like marmite – you either love it or hate it. So if you like Pumpkin and you want to add a little spice to your home I’ve decided to release this as a limited edition colour.
I won’t be making many pieces in this shade and if you want to order it you’ll have to get in touch with your request. Alternatively you can buy one of my custom order pieces and request it as the colour on checkout. Once Pumpkin is gone its gone forever!
