The Addis Glaze Story

From The Clay ceramics

The Addis Glaze Story

The Victorian surf coast is renowned for its wildness. Huge waves hungrily gnawing at the edges of an ancient land. These waves attract surfers and tourists from all over the world to the famous Bells beach and it's surrounding breaks. 

This is where the Addis glaze story begins. The process of erosion from the ocean, wind and rain slowly peels off cliff faces revealing the amazing colours of the clays and minerals laid down over eons of time. In the area near Point Addis, clumps of dark red, iron rich jarosite are strewn on the beach like driftwood. 

One of these shed clumps was gathered, hand ground, sifted fine and added to a beautiful soft white shino style glaze, where all it's colourful specks from dark red to pale yellow are captured in a delicious wash of local beauty and connection.
