Jaime Jenkins - Woodfired Ceramic Bell 1.


A handmade pinch shaped stoneware ceramic bell with ceramic clapper, the bell has been carved while drying.

*This is one of two bells we have that were fired in a soda wood kiln at Driving Creek Potteries in Coromandel. The variation of glazes is from both ash and soda during the firing.

Light sand colour glaze with brown speckle.
Height: approx. 8cm
Diameter of bell at base: approx. 5.5cm
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 use a mix of clays including clay dug from a friends bank and also I mix river sand I’ve collected from various favourite water holes or camp spots I visit over the summer months. 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."
