Vivienne Early – Walnut Tree Pottery
The Early Bird Collection are individually hand sculptured stylised Chicken and Rooster planters. Each bird is an individual which develops it’s own characteristics in the making.
The Collection is made from a highly grogged crank mix, stoneware clay. The clay is high fired to 1280c to withstand most weather conditions. Glazes and colour effects are achieved with slip and textured glazes and oxides.
These planters are made both for garden and conservatory with drainage holes in the base of the garden planters. Because each bird is hand crafted no two are alike, sometimes this results in a distinctive pair, such as Victoria and Albert.
Care should be taken with in-curving designs in frosty weather, a light covering of straw or garden fleece has been found to be successful.
