Description:

A beautiful teapot by Popalini & Jezando, made with Cornish stoneware and wood-fired with soda. The iron wash with 24ct gold kintsugi repairs transforms this exquisite form to become both fully functional, aesthetically pleasing to the eye and comfortable to hold with your hands, making a special brewing experience.

The soda firing has resulted in created unique patterns and textures on the exterior of this piece. They are usually fired for about 40 hours and the soda usually hits the pots on just one side. This contrast is important to Popalini & Jezando, as it gives their work the unique qualities that it has. 

 

About the Artist: 

Working together under the name Popalini & Jezando, Pop Wilkinson and Jez Anderson make collaboratively designed pots, with a particular focus on teaware. They take influence from the traditional pottery of North Devon, which is where they are both from, and also from the subtle understated forms they admired whilst researching wood-firing in Japan.

The often angular forms of their pots are contrasted with soft tactile elements that together celebrate the materiality of clay while at the same time pairing technical complexity with visual simplicity and function. Within their process Popalini & Jezando exploit elemental methods such as wood-firing and the use of ash glazes and wild clays to imbue their contemporary forms with an ancient, earthy quality.
