Tableware by Hamish Jackson Pottery seen at Private Residence, Logan - Porcelain Teapot with Wild Granite Celadon Glaze

Porcelain Teapot with Wild Granite Celadon Glaze


Item details

This teapot was made with Jack Troy porcelain. This is a highly reactive clay, hence the flashy orange accents you see. Jack gave me 2/3 of a bag of this clay after I’d been up to help fire his kiln in Huntington, PA. I came home, full of beans and enthusiasm, and set to making some small teapots out of this precious clay.

I carved into the body of this teapot, which left a hammered brass kind of texture. You can still see and feel this through the thick celadon glaze. This celadon is made from a local granite, mixed with a little lime to help it melt. It is so bright over this porcelain clay!

This is a small teapot, holding 150ml of tea. Perfect for gung fu brewing. The little cups are designed for this too.

Wood Fired Pottery made with Wild Clays and Glaze Materials

I am investigating the use of all kind of rocks to use as glazes for my pots. Clay is of utmost importance to me, then form, and then the surface of the pot.

I've got a handle on the first 2 but working to innovate the third! I am most active on Instagram.

I am a potter from England, trained as an apprentice under Mark Hewitt in North Carolina and now an MFA Candidate at Utah State University.
