Stoneware soap dishes in blues and greens handmade by Sue Ferrer
These stoneware soap dishes are decorated with oxides and underglaze colours in patterns including birds and flowers. The style is flowing, colourful and robust. The dishes have drainage holes and satisfyingly good raised feet to let water drain away.
The soap dishes are slightly varied sizes:
Small (left) 10cm x 3.5cm
Medium (middle, birds) 12cm x 3.5cm
Large (right, flower) 13cm x 4cm
Sue Ferrer is a multi-talented artist/maker in Ramsgate. She is a print-maker, textile artist and potter, and the gift of a kiln re-fired her passion for pottery and is now resulting in lots of lovely pieces of work. Here are a few we have chosen for our collection.
Sue's style is painterly and carries elements of her print-making, sometimes using masques, sometimes a combination of printed shapes and painting. It is colourful, rustic, natural and conveys an essential ethos of honesty.
