Simon Horton Tumbler, Stoneware, Tenmoku
A stoneware tumbler, hand thrown by Simon Horton and reduction fired in South Oxfordshire in a small gas kiln of his own making. In a homemade tenmoku glaze, developed through many hours of experimentation, producing a deep glossy black, with the speckles of dark brown characteristic of the glaze around the rim. With an admiration for pots quiet, understated and modest, Simon finds inspiration from medieval slipware to early Chinese and Korean pottery and feeds this back into his work. Height of 9cm, and a diameter of 9cm, approximately.
