Leslie Parrott
CERAMIC ARTIST:

I make bowls, vases, teapots, mugs, butter dishes, jugs and other functional wares in porcelain and stoneware. They are sold via galleries, craft fairs, commissions and exhibitions.

Many of the pots are thrown but some are hand built. The pots are often textured and impressed to induce variations of glaze thickness and hence colour. Glazes are proportioned using a wide range of fluxes and oxides and clay bodies are often blended to match a particular glaze.
