DDM Ceramics, Made in the Cotswolds

Homeware from Home-Dorcas de Marco Ceramics
  

In the Corn Hall
With all products fired in the Cotswolds, Dorcas de Marco’s handiwork has led to the creation of a variety of tasteful ceramic items. It’s highly likely one of these would make a perfect Christmas present for someone you know. With cups for Japanese Sake, oil pourers and delicately designed bowls, perhaps what counts this Christmas is not so much the contents but the vessel. A box of chocolates might make it to Boxing Day, whereas an enchanting piece by Dorcas could ignite fond memories every morning as the kettle boils.
Ceramics for memories... or to forget!


Food, drink and flowers can be enhanced by Dorcas’ naturally toned pottery. The colour palette is charming as it is authentic. And if you have enough mugs, have no fear, ceramic bunting can liven up a party or occasion with elegantly precise shapes on gratifyingly rugged twine.


How many creative ways can you use your vessels?
Alluring yet simple aesthetics are the yield of a somewhat rustic design. These visuals are right at home in the Barnsley based designer’s stall in the Corn Hall during the craft market. The texture of the pottery holds a hearty combination of rough and smooth grains that delights the fingers as well as eyes. There is a sincerity to the pieces that you won’t easily find in mass produced home or kitchen ware. Dorcas’s work is found most easily on the first and fourth Saturday of the month in the Corn Hall, so be quick to grab items before stocks run out before Christmas.


Available for commissions, it is possible to contact Dorcas via her Facebook page here or e-mail her here.
