Jaime Jenkins - Ceramic Bell, Aotea Woodfired, 5


A handmade pinch shaped stoneware ceramic bell with ceramic clapper.

This collection of bells have been salt fired in a wood fired kiln at a pottery in Shoal Bay, Aotea (Great Barrier Island) in December 2020.

Shades of grey and khaki with some brown areas and speckles, wood-fired glaze, matte finish.

Height: approx. 9.5cm
Diameter of bell at base: approx. 6.5cm
Each bell has its own tone.

Jaime Jenkins is a Mt Maunganui based maker, her spontaneous and sensitive approach to form and finish makes each piece wholly unique.

"All my work is stoneware, I make all my own glazes and every firing will experiment with new ones. I use a mouth blown atomiser to spray the glazes on slowly layering the glazes. Every kiln opening has new surprises."
