A practical pot which we hope will make washing up less of a chore.
Our cutlery drainer must have been in constant use for over twenty years. It has a permanent place on our draining board, although we do put it through the dishwasher occasionally. They are thrown, and a footring turned in the bottom, leaving a thick base through which we drill drainage holes. After so many years, and I don’t know how many thousand holes, I still can enjoy making these pots. The trays which come with these pots are very attractive when just used on their own.
Drainer & Tray:
It must be emphasised that A & J Young is a very small enterprise. The hand making process means that every pot will have its own idiosyncrasies. Small impurities in the clay, variations in the glaze colour and some crazing in the glaze are all part of the character of an individual pot and will not affect their function.
Please note that small variations may be noted between the photographs on our website and the pots you receive.
An almost clear glaze with some tin added to make the glaze slightly opaque. The painted colours show up very brightly on this glaze.
A fresh blue which can vary a little in different parts of the kiln. Stamps impressed into the clay show particularly well through this glaze and details are picked out in darker blue.
A classic bottle green which has a pretty brown fleck in it. Decorations are highlighted in cobalt blue.
