Jack Welbourne large jar
A hand-thrown lidded jar with a blue-grey nuka glaze, great for storage of grains or pulses, small loaves of bread, onions or other foodstuffs. Hand thrown, glazed and fire in Cardiff by Jack Welbourne. 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. Measures very approximately 17cm diameter, by 19cm high.
