About this project

The Spindles are individual hand-built, elegant, sculptural forms on different scales. The pieces are made from high-fired stoneware and are suitable for a courtyard garden and outdoor locations, but will also work well in a contemporary living space. They can also be pit or saggar fired with seaweed, sawdust and other combustible materials to create smoky and painterly surfaces.
