Doherty Cups

€ 47.00

Add to my wishlist

Cups made from thrown porcelain and covered with a porcelain slip containing copper carbonate. During firing a mixture of Sodium Bicarbonate and water is sprayed into the kiln at high temperatures. The resultant reactions leave behind cups with great subtlety of palette; smoky grey, russet, turquoise and lemon.

In 2008 Jack Doherty took up the post as lead potter at the Leach Pottery.  During this time he developed a range of functional ware that respected the ethic and history of pottery but also had its place in the contemporary market.  These cups are a continuation of this work and bring about a beautiful fusion between the historical and contemporary functional form.  Highly tactile to express a beautiful interplay between texture and glaze.
