New Zealand Feldspar Breakfast set
Breakfast was my favorite time at Driving Creek, the kitchen was quiet, the coffee was strong, a bowl of porridge, a side of toast...this little set is a little salute to a lovely place with the finest of pots to eat from.
This New Zealand Feldspar glaze was made with rock collected near Nelson. Brought to Driving Creek to be crushed and milled in the heavy machinery Barry collected from the gold mining industry.
Thrown on-site at Driving Creek Potteries during a month-long residency.
The recipe is a Shino glaze from an article in New Zealand Potters magazine written by Len Castle.
All glazes were made on-site using materials sourced or processed in the Coromandel.
The clay used is a mix of Driving Creeks "Corogold", Macs Mud buff, and Pahiatua wild clay.
11cm x 8cm
This glaze has a rough textured outer finish with a clear celadon liner glaze inside.
