Jonathan Garratt woodfired pots for home and garden.....
A distinctive collection of frostproof garden pots and glazed
Jonathan Garratt makes terracotta garden pots by hand on the
eastern edge of Cranborne Chase in Dorset, using clay from a
local pit and firing the big round wood kiln he built in 1986,
eight times a year.
Woodfiring earthenware was once common all over Europe, but
is now extremely rare. Its great merit is the beautiful effects
it produces on the finished ware. A typical kiln load will hold
pots ranging from orange, through warm red to brown and purple/black,
depending on the heat. These subtle colourings mean that many
of the pots look instantly antique and mellow, in contrast to
the vast majority of terracotta available elsewhere.
