Salad Days Ceramics are handmade by Lucy Coote at her home studio in Berhampore, Wellington. She makes wheel thrown and hand built forms with a focus on function and tactility, creating 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 silhouettes.
All Salad Days pieces are made from stoneware and earthenware clays and glazed in subdued white, black and clear glazes.
The term Salad Days refers to the nostalgia of youth and reminiscing on golden periods of one's life. We hope these pieces will be enjoyed as part of your daily rituals, to make the present your salad days!
