Chris and Janet Dawes produce lively decorated hand thrown domestic stoneware. All work is individually decorated with oxides and stains painted over a white tin glaze which is once fired in an electric kiln. While Chris is primarily responsible for throwing the ware, Janet uses her design skills to decorate the varied shapes and surfaces.
