Subtle and dramatic like the moon in all its guises, these smoke-fired ceramic plates are a special collaboration with ceramic artist Elvis Robertson. Mesmerizing smoked pieces created with a primal and earthy fire process, by spending endless hours studying the smoke created by different materials, weather and timings and learning how to harness their powers.

- Handmade in the UK showing the marks of the maker's process
- Never leave lit or burning incense unattended
- Dimensions approx 15.5 cm diameter
Care: These smoked ceramics are food-safe and it is recommended that you hand wash and dry with care
Previously a textile designer, making bespoke pieces that worked with the houses and the personalities of the families that commissioned them, Elvis
by chance took a pottery class to give herself some time away from ‘work’ and shared her magically tactile pieces on Instagram, the work was so well received that it is now her full-time occupation.
The pieces have organic shapes and echo colours and forms from nature with a quiet, but strong identity. Working with subtle changes in glazes and smoked pieces created with a primal and earthy process. Spending endless hours studying the smoke created by different materials, weather and timings.
Elvis is interested in the strength that comes from the quietness of her work giving it a timeless feel. 'Working with fire is such a natural and elemental thing to do, it feels connected to history - a pure and exciting way to work. I relish having found my eye, feel and passion for ceramics.'
