News from the world of fairfax thomson interiors

In our latest 'News' we are thrilled to be able to tell you about our collaboration with another super talented potter from the TV's 'The Great Pottery Throw Down' Nick Robatto.

 

Here at fairfax thomson interiors HQ we are passionate about ceramics and to be able to work with someone who has the same passion as we do is a delight.

In Nick's own words "In all my pieces I try to create a rolling shape with movement, curves and contrasting hard edges. I mostly use grogged stoneware clays to achieve texture; the pieces are then sometimes left unglazed to show the clay in its natural finish. However often a glaze will be partially applied to contrast with the clay. I use several different methods for glaze application, including spraying, dipping, brushing and pouring."

 

In our Cirencester Showroom we have a range of representative pieces - Vases and bowls that have the tell-tale 'fingerprint' unique to Nick's work of the sea and the coast.

In Miles's own words "My work is building strength through shape and form. Each piece holds itself in an expressive way, like tailored clothing. I’ve worked with clay for the last six years. For twenty years I’ve been designing with textiles. From designing clothing I know how the cloth fits the body and how the flow drapes the form".

 

In our Cirencester Showroom we have a range of representative pieces by Miles - Raku fired pieces, Tea Bowls, Beakers, Mups (not a traditional mug, not a traditional cup), Vases and Bowls along his signature 'Stand Tall' abstract figures. All telling a story, all unique, all crafted with passion and energy.
