David Stonehouse Tumbler

Sold Out

Cambridge-based potter David Stonehouse has created this collection of wheel-thrown stoneware exclusively for Kettle's Yard. The range is inspired by his frequent visits to Jim Ede’s beautiful Kettle’s Yard home, and references some of its familiar motifs and hidden treasures. Some pieces are one-offs while others are repeated with subtle variations.
Tumbler (single)

Height: 8.5cm
Diameter: 8.5cm
Volume: 250ml

Hand thrown porcelain tumblers referencing Ben Nicholson’s recurring abstract motifs. White porcelain with shiny transparent glaze and contrasting unglazed circles, and black or grey underglaze resist lines - very tactile to handle. They make ideal whisky tumblers, with tapering bodies to catch the aroma and a weighted base to help maintain the temperature, but also work well as small planters for cacti or succulents.
The tumblers come with either black or grey linework - if you have a preference, please specify in the notes field at checkout

Please note that due to the hand-making process, the nature of the materials, and interactions in firing, all pieces and finishes are unique and will have subtle variations.

About David Stonehouse:

David is a Cambridge-based designer-maker, who combines contemporary design with traditional craftsmanship to produce refined objects. He uses a restricted palette of materials to allow these to be at the forefront of each piece, often celebrating the tactile contrast between raw clay and glazed areas. His hand-thrown domestic ware is the product of an ongoing refinement of form, function and detailing, to enrich everyday occasions. Although striving for consistency, he values the variation that hand-crafting produces, which he sees as helping to connect the user with the maker.
