Handmade by renowned world-class Queensland Potter Peter Wallace who is known for his superb forms and outstanding glazes. Peter has been potting since 1972, well over 40 years now, he has trained with and worked with some of our greatest talents in this field like the great Australian Artist, the late Pro Hart. Peter also had the privilege to spend time with one of our fathers of pottery Carl McConnell. Another great influence Peter recognises in his development to be such a good potter, was John Durand.
Peter's palette has a range of colours that an oil painter would be proud to produce. They include crystalline and copper red glazes, Arabian and resin lustres, suffused with 22 carat gold. More recently, Peter has included a range of vibrant coloured slips.
As these porcelain water purifiers are all individually handmade and are as unique and individual as we are, No two pots are exactly the same. They are hand thrown on the potter’s wheel from high-quality Australian Porcelain clay and glazed in Crystalline Glaze making them the perfect container for holding and dispensing this clean filtered chemical free water.
The unique Crystalline Glaze often creates stunning large crystal forming canopies of coloured snowflakes over the glaze surface, which has many devotees and collectors. Believed to have been developed in England at the turn of the 19th century, but was discarded due to the large number of losses because of the high fluidity of the glaze.
The Crystals are formed by an interaction of minerals with silica (the glass former) and zinc (the flux). Crystal development occurs during the cooling cycle, with a wide variety of shapes and sizes, the microcrystal can be up to 75 mm across. The colours are derived from a variety of metal oxides, gold from iron, green from copper, pink from manganese as well as the elusive nickel, the only mineral to give two separate colours a blue crystal on a tan background. The pots come in a range of colours, Blue, Green, White, Pink, Gold, Nickel and combinations of two colours.
A professional, efficient system of packing is provided with specially designed padded packing to ensure these beautiful pots can be shipped around the country and arrive at your home in perfect condition just as they were made. So if it is quality and craftsmanship you're looking for, this could be a great solution for you.
This style of water filtration is a very popular method which creates very good quality water. Popular with people who like great filtration, while the minerals are retained in the drinking water. It is the slow speed the water is filtered at that creates such good water and removes so many contaminants with these filters. As with all our gravity water filters, you have the choice to select the cartridge for your needs. From the drop-down box above you can select the standard Doulton ceramic cartridge which is normally used on rainwater, it is ok to use this cartridge if you live in an area where the water is treated with chemicals, but be aware the Doulton will have little to no effect to remove the fluoride or chloramines from the water. Honestly, I would use the SCP plus or the Ultraceram water filtration candles nowadays. Even rainwater can contain heavy metals, paint contamination, herbicides or pesticides. So it is advisable to use the better quality candles if possible. Enjoy drinking clean, safe, chemical free water.

The ceramic filter candles can be scrubbed & cleaned as or if required, but this will depend on the quality of the water used in the first place. The filter candle is a final stage filter, the cleaner the water to start the longer between cleaning the candle.
The "drip rate" should be one litre per hour, when it slows down it is time to scrub clean. New 100 grit sandpaper or a new green Scotch-Brite scour pad to scrub the candle works very well.
