Medium Tripod Pot
We stumbled upon Jonathan Garratt’s work whilst exploring our new territory in Dorset and it’s surrounds.
His studio — crammed full of books on African art, neolithic weapons, ancient Chinese pottery alongside stacks of records — drew us in and we ended up staying and talking for hours.
Jonathan previously studied archeology, and this background informed his unique process within his current creative practice. Jonathan is one of the few if not only potters in the UK to dig, refine and make his own clay. It's a long 2 year process, that he explains makes a far more mailable and soft clay. Each piece is then wood fired in his own hand built kiln.
We are particularly drawn to his 3 legged pots and bird feeders. These are inspired by the African Weaver birds nest. Each feeder has its own unique pattern. They come with a rope to hang from a tree or anywhere you may find suitable. They have 3 entrances for the birds to feed from.
Jonathan’s tripod pots are evocative of Chinese neolithic cooking pots, each with their own distinctive markings. They are suitable for use both inside or out as they are frost proof. Tripod pots are sold without plants but it is possible to request planting. Please contact us
