Made from fine white Australian stoneware clay and cloaked in a range of glazes, in smoky beiges, watery blues and chocolatey blacks. These pieces have been individually thrown on the potter's wheel, coddled through the drying process and undergone two firings, reaching stoneware temperatures of 1280 degrees C. Ready to stand up to the rigors of the kitchen and modern life, no two pieces are the same so expect some subtle nuances. Whilst these pieces are capable of being put in the dishwasher, hand washing is always recommended.
About the Artist
The Australian landscape, in all its diverse beauty, has long been a powerful inspiration for Wendy Jagger’s artworks. Her paintings form the backdrop for her renowned porcelain artworks, many of which are in public and private collections around the world.
Working from her purpose-built work space – Studio KanderField, situated in the pretty town of Mansfield in Victoria’s North East, Wendy combines working on the potter’s wheel with painting strong landscapes as well as teaching ceramic and ‘plein air’ painting workshops both in her studio and as an artist-in-residence in schools.
Sculpture is also becoming a part of her portfolio, designing pieces with her husband David, who is the construction and engineering part of this creative duo.
