Popalini & Jezando - Tea Pot Teapot

Wild seas and clay-laden fields surround the studio of potters Popalini & Jezando. Nestled away in the rural parish of Welcombe in North Devon, the duo create collaboratively designed, wheel-thrown pots from their agricultural shedturned-studio.

Pop & Jez use as many local materials as they can to create their distinctive tea pots and tea bowls. They collect their stoneware clay from an independent clay-pit in West Cornwall, and once bisque fired, the pots are dipped in an iron-rich glaze that is reminiscent of cast iron. Sometimes, portions of each pot are left bare to reveal the natural qualities of the clay.

The finished wares of Pop & Jez carefully reference the understated forms of Japanese tea-ware, and the cast iron kettles that traditionally hang above open fires in Japanese homes. And intrinsically, they pay gentle homage to the traditional pottery of North Devon too.

"You can dig down almost anywhere around here and find clay. As a child I used to go and collect clay from the banks of streams and sculpt clay animals with it."

"I can still remember excitement of handing over my first raw pot to be fired, and getting it back hard and shiny with serendipitous licks from the fire."

"Our studio probably sounds more romantic than it is, but we love the space because we made it."
