I make a comprehensive range of shaving mugs and scuttles by hand in high fired stoneware in my studio pottery workshop in Warwickshire.   

This style of shaving bowl originated from a commission by Mike who had seen a pedestal bowl on "youtube" by geofatboy

Mike and I have adapted it a little by incorporating a spiral throwing rings to aid lather production.  I've built a chunky foot to the pedestal bowl so that youve got a really good grip when whisking up that lather.

"With regards to my shaving bowl - (Pedestal Bowl #7T), I am very happy with it. I use it in preference to the other two bowls and scuttles that I have. And when not in use it sits proudly on the bathroom shelf looking very “posh”:

 

 Mike says: " 

I think that the size of the bowl is perfect, especially as I favour large brushes, 26, 28 & 30 knot sizes. It gives plenty of room to mix up a good thick creamy lather, and the ridges on the inside certainly assist in this."

 

 

 

 Bespoke commissions are also considered. Each piece is made on the potter’s wheel, so whilst each item starts with the same weight of clay they do differ slightly in height and width which adds to the individuality of the piece.     

 All my work is microwave & dishwasher friendly, pots of mine have rattled around our dishwasher for the past 5 years
