Fine Bone China - Artist's Ink Wells

I’ve teamed up with ceramicist extraordinaire Wendy Tournay to create these unique Ink Wells. 

Each is handmade by Wendy and has a signature 24ct gold drip decoration. This references the Japanese philosophy of "Wabi-sabi " (the beauty of things; imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.) It seems fitting with an artist's tool where the only way to improve and progress is through the inevitable mistakes, inky splots and splashes.

The collaboration is a marriage of state of the art 3D printing to create a high resolution 'master'.  Wendy uses this model to create a mold from plaster, once this has set she can then replicate the master design by pouring bone china slip into it.

Each Ink Well has been cast by hand and, is given a simple thumb impression which allows for a pen to rest on the rim whilst also making easier to decant any remaining ink.  No more inky desk!
