Ceramics by Forwood Design
Forwood Design’s new ceramics collection, created in collaboration with Paul Mossman, boasts bespoke, nature-inspired creations that add a touch of the earth to any tablescape. Paul Mossman, British potter and artisan ceramics craftsman, creates hand-thrown ceramics using traditional methods. This manual method of creating pottery is an artisan craft produced by working clay on a potter’s wheel. Each of Paul’s pieces is uniquely created, resulting in a truly authentic product that beautifully represents Forwood Design’s nature-inspired collections.
Read on to learn how Paul Mossman crafts his ceramics and some of the inspirations that propelled him into his life’s work.
Paul Mossman’s interest in ceramics began in school and developed throughout his life.
“Similarly to Henry Forwood, nature and my environment have been at the heart of what has influenced me over the years. At the end of the school day, I went to pottery while the teachers had their staff meeting. Soon after, I went to college from 18 to 21, and there I began making food pots. I was always intrigued by the gable ends of terrace houses and the fancy Victorian brickwork,” Paul says.
