neil hoffmann : stoneware dimple cup
The playfully puckered rim of these cups is as idiosyncratic as each of us, gently drawing attention to the essential, earthy qualities of the clay and the human qualities of their collaborator. Handmade to be held, the speckled warmth of these cups can only be matched by a hot miso soup or calming green tea.
Every dimple cup is hand thrown, each curve and glaze marking adding to the patina of the individual piece.

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 four decades, Neil has developed an intimate relationship to the land where he works, often incorporating clays from his immediate local environment. He also works with porcelain and whole dolerite rocks, using both wood burning and gas-fired kilns. The maker is privileged to share this uniquely organic tableware.
