David Collins designs and handcrafts a wide range of exquisite stoneware pottery and functional ware including teapots, bowls, tableware, vases and more.
David loves nothing more than his pieces to be used and enjoyed on a daily basis. Bring a sense of calm to your morning or afternoon by brewing the perfect cup of tea in a David Collin’s teapot and serve in lovingly crafted cups and saucers. Enhance meals to a visual and spiritual feast when served using David Collins tableware – whether it’s a healthy breakfast of muesli and fruit, a lunch salad or a hearty dinner. The earthy aesthetic of David Collins’ tableware perfectly complements Asian and Italian style meals but is a beautiful way to present all styles of cooking.
His stoneware pieces are individually handcrafted in his South Coast NSW studio and fired in a gas kiln under reducing conditions. Wood ash is sprayed onto the surface of the fired pieces to give a fluid running effect. Using this technique the materials, clay, underglaze and ash overglase fuse together and then flow over the piece forming a range of colours and textures in a sea of movement. David’s pieces with their organic finishes and muted colour palette have a meditative appeal. David’s work is heavily influenced by traditional Japanese pottery of the Muromanchi Period.
Celebrate the tea making experience and taste the difference when using a David Collins’ hand crafted ceramic teapot.
