This charming stoneware teapot with strainer from Suntree Studios is visually striking for its unique patterning and stripped back simplicity. The exterior was left unglazed with little spots of brown glaze on the cream colour clay, and the inside was glazed white.
Stoneware pottery is made on a throwing wheel, but differs from Earthenware clay in that it is fired at a much higher temperature, thus producing the texture, look, and feel of stoneware.
This stoneware cup was made by talented Latvian ceramicist Natalija Pestume, as part of her independent ceramic studio, Suntree Studios. Nata began Suntree Studios in the year 2014, and has since grown her business into a successful studio with stockists in Germany, Belgium, Denmark and now the UK ! Nata likes to work with primarily porcelain and stoneware as she favours natural looks and materials over extravagance. Nata also likes to create pieces which ease into the atmosphere of slow living, and showcase her native country, Latvia.
