- Product Details
An earthenware charger platter by ceramicist Hannah McAndrew. Each piece is hand thrown on a potter’s wheel, and has been decorated with contrasting coloured slip, a type of liquid clay. A popular form of pottery in Britain from the 17th century to the 19th century, this slipware piece is a contemporary take on a traditional form of folk pottery.
About Hannah McAndrew
Hannah McAndrew is a slipware potter working in south-west Scotland. Hannah set up her first workshop in 2003. Her work draws on the rich heritage of Britain’s tradition of slipware pottery, using it as a basis for her own contemporary work. Thrown in red earthenware, Hannah’s work is decorated using coloured slips and rich honey glazes. The decoration is trailed on to the surface of the pot while the slipped surface is still glistening wet. The freshly applied slip looks much like cream or melted chocolate. Hannah has built a wood fired kiln and is now working with the challenge of this new exciting way of firing her slipware pots.
