Woodfired stoneware mug and jug, with tenmoku glaze; by David Gundry
We were given two of these mugs and the matching jug as a wedding present by some kind Devon friends. I’ve discovered this week that they were made by David Gundry, a retired GP who lives on the edge of Dartmoor. The mug shape is really comfortable in the hand, and the glaze is one of those whose beauty increases the more you look at it. I’ve been thinking about kilns more than a little this week and David’s is something else (take a look at these three videos #1, #2 and #3). If anyone out there would ever like some help with a wood firing, please let me know. I’d love to witness the process first hand.
