neil hoffmann : woodfired ellipse dish
Characteristic of Neil’s work, the distinctive elliptical shape of this dish plays with natural shapes and the cyclical, earthy qualities of the clay.
Hand thrown and fired in a gas burning kiln, there's a little piece of Tasmania baked into each one.
Every Hoffmann piece is hand thrown and unique; each curve and glaze marking adding to the patina of the individual piece.

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.
