Craft shop. Open daily, 10am-5.30pm.

All December, a range of ceramics by Devon potter, Phil de Burlet are on sale -  at a special discount rate of 10% off!

Perfect for gifts this Christmas, these hand crafted ceramic pots, vases, mugs and bowls are all made from porcelain, a strong white clay. The pieces are made on the wheel, painted in their raw (unfired) state and then biscuit fired. All are decorated with atractive and contemporary decorative patterns in monotones. After the biscuit firing comes the glaze firing for which Phil uses a transparent matt glaze.

The glaze is sprayed on; in theory this gives an even, non-drippy, smooth surface. Then comes the last process, the glaze firing. Rarher than a pyrometer, Phil I uses cones, tapering  triangles of ceramic material made to bend at a precise temperature: 'a marvel as long as you can see them'. They are placed close to the bungholes and, as the colour inside the kiln gets near to the 'right' colour (white-hot for porcelain).
