“I’m currently developing a new range in porcelain. Had my first reduction firing out the other day and the glazes were creamy and ‘dreamy’ – this new range will be called ‘Milk and Honey'”.
This year’s Open House
Sylph Baier brought her own functional tableware together with two more ceramicists set against a back drop of colour in Kate Strachan’s evocative still lives.
Joachim Lambrecht returned for a second year with his exquisitely made sculptural vessels in their distinct dark hues which were the perfect compliment to the beautiful burnished smoke fired pots from Frances Marr.
About Sylph Baier
Sylph Baier’s “Lift” range is mainly form based, drawing on 27 years of throwing experience, taking the material to its limits and constantly exploring functionality and purpose. The soft, tactile glaze of the “Lift” range is available in 7 colours.
Sylph specializes in making bespoke tea- and dinner sets and enjoys creating specialist objects for customers, from tulip vases, to honeycomb pots. She also produced a children’s range, personalising everything with names and birth dates.
“I see myself very much as a service who can work with the customer within my visual vocabulary, in producing tailor made functional pots which have presence and soul. The notion that my work is being used and treasured by many people on a daily basis gives me a great sense of purpose and satisfaction and will keep me going forever and a day”
