Blue and Pink Dappled Porcelain Mug by Katharina Treml
Katharina is arguably one of the finest potters in the country and has won many awards for her exquisite ceramics including the DCCoI s Future Makers Award 2022. Katharina is a graduate of the DCCoI Pottery Skills in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny. Katharina writes of her work:
"I aspire to make pots that enrich everyday life and encourage people to slow down in a fast paced world. I hope whoever uses my work feels some of the joy that I feel making it.
I have an ever growing curiosity about materials - trying to understand how I can use what I find locally, how it reacts in the kiln, what colours or textures it achieves. Processing wood ash, local clay or minerals is time consuming and requires a lot of testing. I like this involved way of working. The unpredictability of these materials excites me, makes each pot unique and gives them a sense of place."
These very special cups feature Treml's baby soft glazes in a dappled blue and pink . Very finely thrown and perfect for savouring a good coffee or herbal tea. A thing of beauty.
