Hand thrown on the potters wheel in brutalist clay and doubled dipped in bespoke hōrua glaze. Hōrua means baked kōkōwai in te reo Māori, kōkōwai is a deep red brown earth pigment, culturally and spiritually important to māori, used in decoration and ceremony. Hōrua is inspired by kōkōwai and this glaze is a celebration of wild uku/clay and earth pigments. It is a deep red glaze with chocolate brown stain glaze. The brutalist clay is a hard waring clay, that has a light feel and concrete look.
