Working from her pottery studio in St Brelade, Laura handcrafts small batch porcelain ceramics, using an age-old pottery technique: slip casting.
The Seascape collection features stained porcelain, hand decorated to create a marble pattern, unique to each individual candle holder. Silhouette birds are then added to finish the seascape scene. The surface is sanded, polished and deliberately left unglazed to showcase the tactile and raw, natural beauty of the porcelain. Finally, they are fired at high temperature in a pottery kiln to transform the clay into a strong, translucent ceramic; perfect for candle light.
Measures approximately 7cm high and 8cm diameter.
Includes a gift box, ribbon and a tea light candle. Minor imperfections may occur due to its handmade nature. This adds to the charm and character of each unique piece.
