Earth, Milk, and Tree: Stoneware Ceramics from a London Chef

July 25, 2016

Clare Lattin and Tom Hill, the duo behind London restaurants Ducksoup and Rawduck, have a love for “all things made with time and patience,” including dinnerware. At their two restaurants, they set the tables with a custom line of pottery, called Vessel & Time, designed by Lattin and Hill themselves and thrown by a “friendly potter” in Dorset. The ceramics are made up of three groups of stoneware: Earth, Milk, and Tree. Earth pieces are mixed clay finished in a Japanese iron oxide glaze to reveal a gradient of reddish brown; Milk is a range of white ceramics—matte to speckled and rose-tinted; Tree pieces are glazed in celadon and fired at a different temperature than the rest.

If you’re in London, you can find the line at Ducksoup and Rawduck or online by contacting Clare at Vessel & Time.
