About this project

For this body of work Taz has been inspired both by the English costrel (a type of hip flask) and the Korean moon jar, creating full bellied satisfying shapes finished with rope, leather or copper. Rope is a link with the maritime tradition of trading in pottery between North Devon and North America in previous centuries. Small details such as copper rivets are a nod to boat building and the use of orange rubber makes you feel the pieces could have had a former life bobbing on the sea.
