Derek Wilson Ceramics X Maven - Regular Cup

Derek Wilson Ceramics X Maven - Regular Cup


Regular Cup, in grey clay, pink or olive interior slip with transparent glaze.

A series of Cups + Pourers produced by Derek Wilson exclusively for Maven. Each piece is hand thrown on the potter’s wheel, the bases are turned when the clay is leather hard and the handles are then extruded and attached. The clay is a grey coloured body made up of a porcelain and stoneware mix, the interiors have a pink or an olive coloured porcelain slip. The pieces are bisque fired to 1000˚ and then glazed and fired to 1250˚ in an electric kiln in Derek’s studio at Portview, Belfast. 

The shapes, proportions and form are a design that Derek has consistently produced as part of his functional studio range. For this collaboration the colours selected reflect the ethos and aesthetic of Maven. The collection focuses on the functionality of the utilitarian object, combining craftsmanship and design.
