Arwyn Jones takes the utilitarian ware of Spain / Portugal and the deep, subtle glaze finishes of the Orient as inspiration to create simple, elegant, functional items.
Pieces are thrown using a smooth white stoneware body and either left unaltered or allowed to stiffen before being cut in order to remove sections and then reassembled. Surfaces of freshly thrown pieces are either marked using simple tools to create areas where the glaze can pool or run, or a slip made from the clay body is applied and then combed away leaving subtle ridges to catch or direct the pooling glaze. The glazes used are the result of continual testing, trying to achieve the correct balances between colour, gloss, fluidity, opacity and durability.
All Arwyn Jones ceramics are oven, microwave and dishwasher proof.
