James Lemon are handmade by James Shaw in his studio in Thornbury. Every piece is made with the intention of mirroring organic shapes; imperfection is the object, highlighting the material origin of each item and the human hands that made it.
The tactile nature of clay is integral to the work, and is confronted throughout the process with a focus on the different textures at hand. Whether via form or finish, there is always a strong suggestion that the piece is intended to be held.
Most pieces are made from reclaimed mixed clays, creating unpredictable and unique variations in colour,shape and texture. All work is high-fired stoneware and completely food-safe.
