Marshall Colman makes a range of tableware and one-off pieces using the difficult technique of tin-glazed earthenware. His work designed for the modern home with a mid-century modern feel, but based on a knowledge and appreciation of the long history of tin-glaze. His inspirations include fifties textiles, Japanese painting and old maiolica.
All pieces are thrown on the wheel using a pink terracotta in the Mediterranean tin-glaze tradition. Bisque firing is to 1060 deg. C, which ensures a hard body and a craze-free glaze.
He studied at Harrow (BA Ceramics, University of Westminster) and trained at the Rodmell Pottery. His studio is in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
