neil hoffmann : woodfired wild tri-fold bowl
Characteristic of Neil’s work, the distinctive folded rim of these bowls gently draws attention to the essential, earthy qualities of the clay and its human collaborator. Hand thrown using wild native clays and fired in a wood 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.

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.
