The Research Collection

November, 2014

By treating materials as paint and using them to color earthenware and china, we developed a color chart with 120 different colors. Twelve materials originating from the china, tin and copper industry in Cornwall were used to form the basis for this chart. The colors show the richness of the landscape in which they were once flourishing industries. In order to turn them into ceramic paint, the materials have been dried and ground, diluted with water and applied as a color coating to earthenware and china.
In ‘The Research Collection’ the colors are used to color 4 basics; an espresso cup, a coffee cup, a small bowl and a cone. Each one is unique and colored differently.


Small bowl
Coffee / Tea cup
