Ceramics smoked in a BBQ. Every piece is unique, its surface pattern and colour forged by exposure to smoke in the fire.
Each item is produced by slip-casting or press-moulding white earthenware clay, fired to 1150°C to reach adequate strength and durability. They are then buried in a BBQ filled with sawdust and a range of additives and set alight. After 12 hours, the smoke is absorbed deep into the clay body. The products are picked from the ashes, cleaned, waxed and polished.
The process has been developed through extensive research and development, combining backyard science with precision craft, to create products and surfaces which are visually striking and durable.
