The Thoughtful Hare in Trees by Lesley Nason

The Thoughtful Hare in Trees by Lesley Nason is a beautiful, handmade piece of ceramic which sits beautifully in its custom made oak plinth. 

Lesley studied Fashion & Textile design at Loughborough University and graduated with a 2:1 BA (Hons) Degree. Lesley Nason then worked for 18 years as a commercial textile designer and trend forecaster, working with many companies including Marks & Spencer, Next, Victoria's Secret, Adidas, Nike, Landrover & VW.

To produce her wall panels and vessels she firstly draws the image with linear and textural detail into the soft porcelain. Each image is drawn free hand into the clay so each piece is unique. The vessels are then hand built from the decorated panels. Once dry the pieces are bisque fired, then colour and contrast is achieved through the careful application of oxides, stains, glazes and resist. Once fired to 1250 degrees, ink is applied to bring out the beauty and delicacy of the crackle glaze.
