Nix Hawkins Ceramics


Individual hand-crafted ceramics to sit comfortably in your hand and home There is something quite amazing about using my hands, a few simple tools and heat to transform a humble lump of mud into a beautiful yet functional object that will last for years. Working in stoneware, my designs are hand-decorated and glazed in a soft natural colour palette reflecting the materials and landscape around my Dorset studio. Each piece is distinct, from the subtle marks and shapes made by my hand to organic earthy finishes from traditional wood-firing techniques. This method, now only used by a few potters, is a labour of love with each firing taking days, fraught with uncertainty, yet the beautiful pots that emerge are worth the effort. Most of all, I love making things that have purpose, that can be used and enrich the everyday.
