Description:

This beautiful teapot handmade by Popalini & Jezando, is created with a Cornish stoneware and has an iron wash. It has a smooth glaze on the interior made with wood-ash Celadon, and the exterior has a lightly textured surface. With an angled brass handle sitting at the top, and a small spout, this teapot will sit neatly in the home. The exquisite functional form is wood fired with soda for roughly 40 hours. The soda normally hits the pots on one side, which is the desired effect for artists Popalini & Jezando who favour working with local and natural materials.

 

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.
