A hand thrown, woodfired, stoneware pottery jug by Nick Membery in a brownish black tenmoku glaze to the outside which has lovely small flecks of greens throughout with a beautiful delicate variegated, pale green ash glaze inside and on the rim. Its a perfect shape, elegant, with a gently rounded body and faultlessly neat rim with a perfect pouring lip. Its these details and his attention to them, that sets his pottery apart. Good, honest, beautifully crafted, handmade tableware.

He’s been making useable stoneware pottery for over 25 years , but in 2019 set about fulfilling an ambition and changed his way of working and built a large, wood fired kiln at his pottery in Llandeilo, Wales. It the beginning of an exciting new chapter and marks a different approach to his process as the variations and characteristics that wood firing brings to his work makes for each piece to be considered as an individual a true one off and unique. It is Nick’s intention to make well crafted, quietly beautiful and understated pots that are a joy to hold and use. His pots are to be lingered over and enjoyed and we love our Nick Membery jug at home using as a water jug at the table but filled with flowers makes for your very own still life! Beautiful!

We have a selection of Nicks mugs and eating  and pouring bowls too,  all one offs with variegated and beautiful colour ash glazes but selected into tonal groups and colours so that they all pair very nicely together.
