We are Ashboar, a ceramics company based in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. Set up in 2018 by Siobhan Igoe and Dan Gough. All of our work is made to invoke a sense of comfort; handmade ceramics bring the tactile and uniqueness of craft that turn a simple object into your favourite mug or plate.
We glaze our work in colours that we see outside our studio everyday. Using ash from the logs we burn, our specially designed ash glaze creates unique patterns and swirls that make each bowl, plate and cup unique. When you buy a piece of our work you now own something that is a one-of-a-kind object and we love that!
We developed all of our unique glazes using renewable materials, incorporating wood ash extensively. This gives us our name - Ashboar.
