Whitegold Festival

Catherine Lucktaylor

Exquisitely crafted one of a kind pinched and coiled bowls and vessels embody the wild beauty of the Cornish landscape with many surfaces burnished to a smooth sheen using my favourite beach pebble. My vivid use of colour, including her signature turquoise glaze, reflects the vibrant colour of the sea whilst the smoked crackle pattern is reminiscent of the rugged cliffs.

Recent collections are all Raku fired; an ancient Japanese technique which basically means ‘Enjoyment’. Glazed pieces are removed from the kiln whilst red hot and smoked in sawdust to give the distinctive crackle effect.

A piece from my best-selling Wild Cornwall Collection was featured on the BBC’s The Great Pottery Throwdown and described as a ‘perfect example of Raku’
