Tom Butcher Stoneware

March 13, 2012

Unadorned and earthy, the pottery of Scottish ceramist Tom Butcher is inspired directly by the tumbling hills of his native Loch Lomond.

Butcher thinks up new shapes and designs for his Loch Lomond Stoneware while riding his mountain bike through the wilds of the Arrochar Alps. He makes his pottery through an extrusion process—in which clay is shaped with metal plates, then cut and assembled while wet—and finishes them with an oatmeal-colored glaze that "reminds me of the stone that surrounds my studio," he says. Rustic, but with an innate elegance, the pottery is also inspired by the simplicity of children's book illustrations and a Japanese aesthetic of "asymmetry, roughness, and the integrity of the materials," Butcher says.
