Product Information

We have now sold out of our handcrafted teapots. This was our very first batch of slip cast teapots, each one is just a little bit different with unique quirks and imperfections. We hope to have more stock available soon.

Our new teapots are cast with a stoneware slip which fires to a dark charcoal black. The bisque-fired pieces are individually dipped in glaze before a final firing where the glaze reacts with the manganese in the clay to produce this unique mottled caramel colour.

perfectly imperfect, by deVOL

We never say no to a challenge, we get a buzz out of designing great products and the biggest buzz comes from experimenting with new materials and trying our hand at notoriously difficult things! Learning the design limitations and the most fascinating characteristics of a new material and a new method of production is what keeps us interested as designers and makers. A proper English kitchen needs a proper English teapot, but boy are these things tricky to master. Luckily, we have Claire and Ellie and the whole ceramics team raring to put in the hours and suffer the many failed experiments and disappointing firings. But, finally, after a few drippy spouts and kiln mishaps, we think our first deVOL teapot has turned out quite beautifully.
Our special amber glaze is actually a simple off-white recipe that Claire developed a few years ago. When applied to a typical white stoneware clay, it appears an ivory colour, quite plain and perhaps a little underwhelming. It is only when applied to the dark stoneware that the glaze reacts with the manganese in the clay to create that lovely caramel hue and a really glossy smooth surface. The tone and finish of each piece can vary based on the thickness of the glaze, the method of application, the form of the pot and how the glaze sits on it, the position of the pot in the kiln, which kiln we decide to fire in, the length of the firing, how long we hold the kiln at the top temperature, and so on. It’s a truly unique glaze, something that can be a real nuisance but also quite fascinating from a scientific and artistic point of view.
