Clee Hill clay pancheons

Building up to my final MA assessment and show, I have been working with clays, landscapes and forms linked to baking. Much of my recent work has been focused on an area north of Halifax, close to Soil Hill and Isaac Button’s old pottery, but also continues to explore the wonders of Clee Hill in Shropshire.

Here are two pancheons – forms traditionally used for mixing and rising dough or settling cream, made of my hand-dug and prepared Clee Hill fire-clay with a glaze of dolerite (from the hill top), local clay, wood ash and a small % of quartz.
