Ceramic: Lois’ work is mainly functional, but with a ‘twist’, mostly bowls, jugs, mugs, large platters and decorative pieces

Lois’s pottery is mainly functional but with a ‘twist’.

Mostly bowls, jugs and mugs etc, I also make large platters and decorative pieces. I use earthstone original and special fleck clay, firing to 1260 degrees stoneware and tend to focus on three glazes, a beautiful bright blue which has different qualities depending on the clay used, a duck egg blue and a matt white. I decorate mainly with ‘wax resist’.
