This hand-thrown bowl is made by a simple marbling technique of wedging two different coloured clays together. Once the bowl has been thrown on the wheel, the turning process (which is used to reduce weight and blemishes) reveals the unique patterns that echo the layers of sedimentary rock found on our coastlines.

We at fáilte studio celebrate the uniqueness of hand-thrown objects. We rarely use a pottery gauge, instead we use approximate dimensions from the initial designs.
Many factors can alter the shape of the object, however the most important has to be the living body. Breath, subtle changes in throwing position and organic differences in hand movements add to the unique flow of clay on the wheel.
The above examples allow for individuality across the collections. Each mug will have a slightly different handle, each plate or bowl a slightly different curvature, all to be acknowledged and honoured.
