Tripots & Trijugs

Alison's Tripots and Trijugs are made from a frostproof stoneware clay. Each piece is handbuilt using a slabbing method. The slabs are rolled out and left to dry until they can support themselves. The sides are then cut out, shaped and assembled. Rims and handles are added once the form is constructed. Once dry they are fired to 1,000 C. Glazes and slips are applied to create colour and texture. Each piece is then fired to 1,280 C.

Although Alison can control and design various shapes in the Tripot range, she does not work from templates and so each piece is unique.
