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.
When designing each of our pieces we draw inspiration from the forest around us, combining the comforting colour pallete of nature with a hint of the humble boar to create unique tableware. Our products accentuate and frame the food they serve; from crafted ales, to high quality restaurant cuisine, we bring tradition and care back to the tables that serve delicious food and refreshing drinks.
We developed all of our unique glazes using renewable materials, incorporating wood ash extensively. This gives us our name - Ashboar.
