Slip & Tickle

    Amila Ranasinghe


    Slip : a suspension of clay in water 
    Tickle : to touch lightly producing smiles and laughter

    I am a glorified hobby potter with aspirations!  I produce ‘short runs’ of decorative functional ware; useful, appealing products with a hand-crafted feel. I hope to capture some of the joy I experience when working with these fabulous versatile materials, which will translate into a smile when the piece is used. I work principally with stoneware clay, which is versatile and strong; this allows me to make robust pieces that can be used daily with confidence.  For delicacy and refinement I choose porcelain, which is a delight to the eye and to use.   

    The numerous colours and textures of clay, together with various methods, techniques and tools for throwing, building and embellishing; the huge range of oxides, velvets,  glazes and lustres all feed into the limitless opportunities to be explored by the enthusiastic potter. Hence short runs to allow me to continue my explorations…
