Handmade high fired stoneware pieces made with simple design in mind, to enhance your spaces and everyday experiences.
Based just outside of Tomar, Portugal, Daisy has a keen eye for art and design. Her practice in ceramics has developed over the past 5 years, and takes inspiration from Scandinavian design. She currently sells her work in multiple shops in Lisbon, as well as at craft fairs and on this website.
Come to my home studio in Pai de Aviz, Tomar and learn the basics of slab or coil building using high-fired stoneware clay. In these sessions you will make a piece of your choosing using either technique. Your work will then be fired and glazed, and ready for collection a few weeks later (or posted at an added cost). If you wish, you could also join a glazing workshop where you will briefly be introduced to the chemistry behind, and techniques involved in glazing in order to finish off your piece.
If there is another type of technique you would like to use, or you would like to book a workshop for a date that is not available, please get in touch at email@example.com.
SLAB BUILDING (1 session of 2-3 hours)
You will learn slab building techniques to make a mug, box or piece of your choice. You can then either join a glazing workshop a week or so later, or, alternatively I will fire and subsequently glaze your piece ready for you to collect. The cost will be 30€/person for a half day workshop.
COIL BUILDING (1 session of 3 hours)
You will learn coil building techniques to make a bowl, vase or piece of your choice. You can then either join a glazing workshop a week or so later, or, alternatively I will fire and subsequently glaze your piece ready for you to collect. The cost will be 30€/person for a half day workshop.
PLAY WITH CLAY (for ALL ages, previous ceramics experience required)
Spend some time in the workshop with access to the space and tools to sculpt or make any forms you desire, I will be there to offer advice and help. There is also a wheel you can use at an added cost, and Silvi can help with lessons if you need to perfect your technique.
