Alexis Templeton — Pinch Pot Puddles — Feast of Pottery 2021

Alexis Templeton is a Newfoundland potter celebrated for her functional ceramic work finished in beautiful and distinctive glazes.
Inspired by the natural heritage of her home province, Alexis has developed several signature glaze styles and designs during a career of more than three decades. She draws on both her artist’s eye and her technical knowledge in her continuing exploration of how colour and form, chemistry and serendipity, can yield gorgeous ceramic pieces suitable for your table or your walls.

Pinch pots are one of the simplest pottery forms. In this place setting, Alexis combines one of the simplest forms with one of the most complex glazes. Porcelain clay is "pinched" into a bowl shape and them laid to rest on a beach rock while it dries. The crystalline glaze pools in the bottom of the bowl to look like a puddle of water and ice.
