Catherine Field is the maker behind Splendid Wren Ceramics @splendidwrenceramics. Her range of handmade homewares from Bondi Beach, Australia focuses on functional simplicity. The pieces are made using traditional hand building techniques from a range of stoneware clays. They are then high fired to stoneware temperatures to ensure their durability. No two pieces are the same. They feature natural, earthy glazes and often there will be a finger print or makers mark to remind users that it was made by hand.
