Using the pottery wheel feels like a calling for our resident potter Lucy Brown. She describes it as a meditation: shaping and transforming earthly materials, and incorporating colours of the beach and ocean, to create functional and beautiful objects for everyday use.
Potterbeans pots are made exclusively of black stoneware clay. Evoking the black sand beaches of the volcanic islands from which we source many of our coffee selections.
We combine turquoise glaze with the black clay to complete the volcanic island feel. The turquoise glaze displays interesting changes in different light situations.
Beautiful, durable, and hard wearing, this pottery is designed to be used every day. The aim is to enrich the dining experience. It certainly elevates the morning coffee ritual here at Potterbeans!
