Flared mug, Jack Welbourne, Tenmoku
A generously proportioned flared mug in a black tenmoku glaze. After training in Cardiff and Gothenburg, Sweden, Welbourne set up studio in Cardiff, where he produces wheel-thrown stoneware in red Cornish clay, gas-fired using glazes mixed in his studio (sometimes using materials dug locally, combined with potash, chalk, iron oxide and flint). Jack is inspired by the concave curvatures of neolithic Chinese and early Korean clayware. About 9cm body diameter and 9cm high.
