Details

This is my standard #2 scutlle but with additional lugs on the handle to rest/locate the shaving brush handle, the bristles remaining in the lather bowl.

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

The integral lather bowl incorporates a deep spiral in the base and up the walls, giving good purchase on the shaving brush when creating a soapy lather.    To use the shaving scuttle for a wet shave, hot water is poured into the lip of the shaving scuttle which keeps the later / soap warm for a good 10 minutes, though it can be reheated in the microwave if required.

 Using a typical badger shave or shaving brush, with a  shaving cream /soap / lotion one can create a soapy lather, ready for a wet shave with a cutthroat razor or safety razor. 

 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
