Matt Waite

Matt worked in potteries in Bath and in the Hebrides throughout the 1990's until 2001, when he set up his present workshop at Stowford Farm in Wiltshire. Matt makes a range of tableware alongside individual and larger pieces using a Cornish stoneware clay. The pots are fired in an 18 cubic foot gas kiln, which takes up to 14 hours to reach the top temperature of 1300c. Matt uses glazes which are mostly oriental in origin, include copper reds, iron rich tenmoku, shino, kaki, blue jun and a cream coloured chun. Other glazes make use of estuary mud and wood ash, creating the character and colour of the glaze.
