Inspired by the minimal bowls used by the Pueblo people of Mimbres, this functional bread cloche is crafted from micaceous clay that had been developed by the late Felipe Ortega, a leading micaceous potter. Its form is simple, influenced by 14th century British chicken-bricks and ham roasters.
Material: Micaceous clay
Dimensions: Height: 20cm, Length: 31cm
Care Instructions: Brush and wipe clean with a damp cloth
Crafted from micaceous clay, which has a high content of silver shards, this cloche is hand-thrown on the wheel, while the handle is pulled and added separately. Once leather-hard, it is sanded smooth, covered in slip made from the same clay and hand-polished three times.
Ceramicist Isatu Hyde trained in pottery for three years under the instruction of Andrew Crouch at The Marches Pottery in Ludlow, Shropshire. Isatu is Andrew’s only apprentice and works alongside him still. Isatu works with a range of clays, glazes and styles, with a focus on reduction-fired stoneware. Function is an important aspect of Isatu's work as she is inspired by “beauty that is identified by use” (Soetsu Yanagi), as well as her love for domestic craft from ancient civilisations, from Minoan vases to Japanese Jomon fire pots
