Mike Child lidded ceramic tentacle pots
Mike Child of Paragon Pottery works above Ramsgate harbour and is a studio potter, producing a huge range of styles of pottery, from large sculptural pieces to plates, mugs and bowls. He is very experienced and as well as producing his own work has for many years taught in Kent.
We have always shown Mike's stunning pottery. We loved these two pots, part of a series of pieces themed around tentacles, exploring the coiling shapes and complex textures. The soft sheen glazing makes the pots almost look like leather-covered flagons.
The larger pot is 24.5cm and the smaller 18cm.
