Sue Paraskeva's collection of tableware was first developed during a residency that brought her to the Isle of Wight, UK in 2000. Over 20 years Paraskeva has built an international reputation and produces work for many high profile brands across the US, Canada and Europe, including Calvin Klein Collection, Madison Avenue New York, Design Museum London, Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge for the Hand & Flowers in Marlow and Toast.
Each piece is hand thrown in Paraskeva's studio and the fine forms are glazed internally, leaving an unglazed exterior. The light grey and dark speckled ware are composed of recycled porcelain and stoneware. Pieces are fired in a reduction atmosphere to create a distinct finish that brings the iron speckle to the fore. The porcelain is fired in an oxidising atmosphere to a high temperature in an electric kiln, producing a cream vitrified body which is burnished for a smooth finish.
All tableware is dishwasher safe, for individual items and dinner services, please see shop listings.
