Contemporary Ceramics is located in London, opposite the British Museum. At the front of the gallery, a retail space sells studio ceramics from over 80 makers, who are members of the Craft Potters Association. This is complemented by a dedicated gallery space which hosts regular solo and group exhibitions. From a membership of nearly 400, five new makers are selected to be featured in the gallery every two months. This blog highlights their inspirational stories and tales of ceramics.

‘I make a range of domestic and decorative earthenware. All work is thrown on a momentum wheel or handbuilt, but very often a combination of techniques is used. I am influenced by the European folk art traditions and early English slipware.’
