Christopher Plumridge, Claystone Pottery — Black Crystal Matte Bird Teapot
Christopher Plumridge is the artist behind Claystone Pottery in Highett, Victoria. His work is highly regarded for its precision, studied form and exquisite use of glazes. Originally studying in the 70s under Chinese, Japanese, English and Australian potters, his work has been featured in countless publications and his thriving practice includes commissions for the likes of Attica and the National Gallery of Australia. His outstanding work with glazes is the result of long term development of formulae he originally began testing as a student and have been refined through years of practice. This extensive research and development ensures that the colour, texture and depth remain utterly unique. His pieces are some of the last of individually made industrial quality, commercial ceramic wares to be created in Australia.
Dimensions: height 13.5cm, width 20cm (handle to spout), pot diameter 12cm. The clay stone makers mark appears on the side of the teapot.
Dishwasher and Microwave Safe. *Please note that each piece is crafted by hand and as such the glaze will vary subtly from piece to piece.
