Stoneware mug handmade by Eva Kengen in her Belgian workshop.
It was in Japan, during a long trip, that Eva Kengen discovered turning, a central technique in her work as a ceramist. Clay allows him to explore the complementarity of opposites, to find a tenuous balance between textures, shapes and colors, while preserving the essential functionality of the object. The result is a universe where clean, intentionally imperfect lines meet a palette of natural tones. His stoneware pieces are made on a potter's wheel and enamelled by hand, in his workshop in the heart of the Belgian Ardennes.
MATERIALS : Chamotte gray sandstone
TECHNIQUE : Potter's wheel
EMAIL : From personal research with oak ashes. It is the wood ash, gleaned, whether from fir, birch or oak, the close and local essences near Eva's workshop. His glazes are the result of long research and a very time-consuming ash washing process. They are changeable, as the organic matter will vary from year to year.
COLOUR : Matte white and iridescent ash
DIMENSIONS : Ø 9cm, height 8cm, 250ml
USES AND MAINTENANCE:
Dishwasher: Yes but beware of shocks
NOTE: Like any handcrafted product, these pieces may have slight variations in shape, color and thickness.
