Cherry Vessel II

Charlotte McLeish
Cherry Vessel II by ceramicist Charlotte McLeish is a decorative object influenced by observations of Staffordshire slipware. This latest work forges a new direction with a combination of thrown forms and hand built methods on a larger scale. Charlotte enjoys manipulating a form by hand once it has been thrown, and often mixes both techniques, which gives each piece a uniquely handcrafted character.

Material: White stoneware clay, cherry glaze and green glaze on handles
cm: Diameter 11cm, Height 17cm
inches: Diameter 4.3in, Height 6.7in
Care Instructions: Hand wash in soapy water


Cherry Vessel II was coiled using the aid of a wheel, before being thrown in a number of sections and assembled once the pieces are leather hard. Each piece is made from white stoneware clay and covered in cherry-coloured glaze before firing.
