I'm awaiting delivery of clay + some tools - as soon as they have reached me I will send them out to you. I estimate I'll be shipping Monday or Tuesday. Thank you for your patience!
Dealing with a global pandemic is hard work. Busy your hands and give your lovely, but probably stressed, mind a break by focussing on making some pots for a little while.
Introducing HOME MÄED Clay Kits!
A kit for handbuilding pots at home. Perfect for any age and any stage of making, whether or not you've been to one of my handbuilding classes before. Everyone is welcome!
Get the Mäe Ceramics signature speckled stoneware clay, a set of 8 tools, your very own Mäe clay towel + hand drawn instructions delivered straight to your door. Get access to a tutorial video, covering 3 basic handbuilding techniques to get you started. And if you want, bring your pots back to me to have them fired and glazed.
Have a look through the options below and pick which one suits you the best.
How much clay should you get?? For reference, a cup can be made with about 300-500 grams of clay.
Please only select option 1 or 2if you're able to deliver your pots to me by hand - which means you need to be able to get to me in Deptford, London. Dried clay is very fragile and won't survive being posted. You can drop your pots to my studio whenever suits - be it now or post-pandemic. Please very carefully wrap your pieces in tissue paper and put them very gently in a box. For advice get in touch about this.
Option 1 + 2: Three glaze options are available for you to pick for your batch of pots: Satin White, Charcoal or Nude.
Glazes can be applied
a. to the inside only,
b. inside + dipped on the outside, or
c. fully glazed.
Please let me know on drop off what colour and application option you would like. Please pick ONE colour + application style for the whole batch of pots.
Please write your name, initials or put some kind of identifiable mark on the bottom of your pot. You might be able to pick it from a crowd of cups, but I need some indication to reference glaze choices.
If you choose option 3 or 4, this may mean you have somewhere you can fire and glaze your pots. The clay needs to be fired to at least 1220°c. If you have access to a kiln, you or the studio you'll be firing at is welcome to contact me for more firing info. It's ok to not fire your pots, but do note that they are not water resistant or food safe in ANY WAY, please don't put any liquid in them! They will be vvvv fragile and will likely have a short life. I kind of think that's romantic to be honest.
