Introducing the Grip Collection


by Gill Hutchison June 11, 2018

Living on the Surf Coast it’s impossible not to be influenced by the magical surroundings of the beaches and nearby Otways forests; Chela spends many a weekend exploring the coastal cliffs and trekking to waterfalls. These experiences carry through to creating ceramics in the studio, particularly with the new grip collection.

Chela has been experimenting with a reticulated glaze, often referred to as crawl glaze. The crawl is the result of the glaze receding away from the clay body. Chela’s aim has been to take this crawl effect and turn it into a functional glaze to produce beautiful and strong objects with a textured grip.

The result is the new collection of mugs and tumblers designed with a grip for nursing your freshly brewed tea or coffee. ‘When decorative elements are guided by the function of the object I find the results have an overwhelming beauty in their simplicity,’ she explains.
