neil hoffmann : tessellated dish 03
From his studio in Reedy Marsh, Tasmania, ceramicist Neil Hoffmann creates densely textural pieces which bring organic form and function to the table. In a practice spanning three decades, Neil has developed an intimate relationship to the land where he works, incorporating clays from the immediate local environment as well as porcelain and other ceramics, using both wood burning and gas-fired kilns. The maker is privileged to share this uniquely organic tableware.
With its intriguing surface texture and dramatic unfinished edges, this salt-glazed dish is like no other. Hand thrown from locally dug clays and fired in a wood burning kiln, small dolerite fragments and sculptural folds speak of the character of both maker and land. A perfect way to present condiments, tapas, or use as a trinket dish, each one represents a small piece of Tasmania itself.
Handwashing is best for these ceramics, and please avoid the microwave.
