This mid-century, hand-built, and glazed studio pottery piece is of British Modernist design and is by Tremaen Pottery (1965 - 1988). Beautifully sculptural, tactile, and seemingly simple, this piece would have been constructed and glazed with unconventional techniques, as was the style of Peter Ellery who founded Tremaen.

The form is exceptionally tactile and organic, shaped like a stone smoothed by the ocean tide revealing the layers of its inner strata. The glaze décor is equally as tactile; the palette is a base of warm, speckled Pale Fudge brown overlaid with different bands of tactile browns in Chocolate, Caramel, Umber, and a final band of glossy Espresso towards the base.

This stunning piece actualises many key principles of Modernist design influence, including a focus on combining function with bringing forth the beauty in the natural material.

CONDITION
Excellent. No cracks or repairs. There is faint wear on the underside of the base that is commensurate with the age of the piece. Please see photographs as they form part of the condition report.

A BIT OF HISTORY
Peter Ellery, Tremaen Pottery (1965 - 1988)
Tremaen pottery was first set up by Peter Ellery in Marazion, UK in 1965, typically creating large scale pieces using unconventional techniques in both construction and glazing. His work quickly gained appreciation and popularity, and within 2 years Tremaen pottery moved to a larger premises in Newlyn with the workforce expanding to twelve to cope with demand.

Although work continued to be by hand, the range of pieces produced by Tremaen expanded to include smaller scale and figural pieces. Tremaen's work maintained its popularity but sadly, the recession of the early 1980s created increasing economic difficulties. Ellery sustained Tremaen's production until 1988 where he made the decision to close the pottery.
