Pottery and Ceramics in Bath by Matt Waite

Matt worked in potteries in Bath and the Hebrides throughout the 1990’s and decided to

set up his own workshop in 2001 at Stowford Farm in Wiltshire, which is where he is still based.

 

Producing a range of tableware alongside individual and larger pieces Matt uses a Cornish stoneware clay. His pieces are fired in an 18 cuft gas kiln, built in 2004, which takes up to 14 hours to reach the top temperature of 1300c.

 

The glazes, which are mostly oriental in origin, include copper reds, iron rich tenmoku, shino, kaki, blue jun and a cream coloured chun. Other glazes make use of estuary mud and wood ash, creating the character and colour of the glaze.

 

The Gallery Page has a selection of Matt's pots that are currently available for purchase.
