Fresh on the shelves today we have these beautiful little tea cups to match Paul's wonderfully functional and attractive teapots! All his work is fired to 1300 degrees centigrade making it dishwasher, microwave and ovenproof. Stay warm with a good cup of tea this winter - served in a locally handmade teapot of course!
It is this (Carterton, Wairarapa) rural environment and my political inclination towards egalitarianism that has focused all my work towards some sort of utility. My pots are almost always designed to be a part of ordinary domestic living and to be quiet reminders of the natural materials they are made of and the work of the hand that has produced them.
