Blake Clay is handmade by Rhianna Blake in Sydney, Australia.
She makes wheel thrown and hand built forms with a focus on function and tactility, creating beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that can be used and enjoyed every day. She enjoys the contrast between the two methods - wheel throwing is more precise and measured whilst hand building allows freedom to create more complex and sculptural silhouettes.
Rhianna has obtained a Bachelor of Art Education from the University of NSW, College of Fine Arts in 2009 and continues her learning by attending workshops and masterclasses by Australia's most experienced contemporary ceramic artists.
All Blake Clay ceramics created by Rhianna are made from stoneware and porcelain clays and glazed in unique and subtle colour palettes.
"I enjoy the process of making and using the earthy elements to make something substantial. For me, its not about production, its about slowing down and creating simple and refined forms that can be appreciated and used in everyday life."
Rhianna Blake - Blake Clay
All Blake Clay pieces are handmade and as such every piece is unique or from a very limited series. When ordering quantities of any piece they will look lovely together but they will not be identical. That is the beauty of handmade ceramics.
