Jonathan Smith

retro-owls1

Jonathan Smith has been a ceramic artist for over 35 years and has worked with number of brands like Wedgwood, Tiffany (New York) , Royal Worcester and Jamie Oliver. Now he has started designing his products for himself and selling them on Folksy shop. He made this adorable retro style inspired owl salt & pepper shaker set. He was inspired by the owls that were made at Hornsea pottery and designed by John Clappison who Jonathan worked with at Hornsea.  After many test and experiments he succeeded in producing a wonderful semi matt rustic glaze in green and a mustard yellow. Jonathan loves English slip trailing, so he hand decorated the owls eyes using the traditional techniques that makes each owl unique.
