I make a comprehensive range of shaving mugs and scuttles by hand in high fired stoneware in my studio pottery workshop in Warwickshire.   This is a combination of my standard shaving scuttle and my Suribachi bowl.

The integral lather bowl incorporates a suribachi grooves in raw clay.  This gives 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. 

 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
