Just in time for Christmas, we have received a delicate collection of new work from the talented Ceramic Artist, Brittany Delaney.
Brittany works from her Cheshire studio and explores the translucent quality and fragile effects that can be produced through the use of porcelain. Taking shape and form as a starting point she creates functional vessels and tableware considering simplicity alongside complexity.
Brittany describes her work as follows: 'By modifying the traditional technique of slip casting and carving into the plaster moulds, the commonly concealed casting seams are exaggerated and become a main focus of the design. The making processes are emphasised and highly refined creating handmade work of a high quality.'
Inspired by the everyday, Sue Pryke aims to create her own collection of objects that sit comfortably in the home. Sue Pryke is a British homeware designer, who started her journey into ceramics at a small pottery in Lincolnshire. After graduation Sue’s first job was a designer at Wedgewood, guided by the design team she was taught to understand the breadth of ceramic form. Sue found the challenge of the precision absorbing and the repetitive nature satisfying.
Individually slipcast from vitrified earthenware, these teaspoons are perfectly useful. Fired at high temperatures until it is no longer porous - the clay is finished with a smooth stone like quality.
This teapot is part of the MR & Mrs Studio Collection that combines the work of Sue Pryke and her husband John, combining ceramics and wood. With its high fired stone like surface, the handle is made from steam bent oak.
Simply stunning cutting boards by John Pryke, with leather handle.
Still Life Jugs
Hand thrown faceted jugs are part of Akiko's still life collection. These exclusive jugs would create a stylish presence for dining or enhance any shelf.
Dry Kohiki Facet Collection
Akiko Hirai's Kohiki collection is hand sculpted with matt exterior and glazed interior. The beauty of these faceted pieces would be a piece increasingly appreciated over time. Within the form and tone it is almost deceiving in it's simplicity, yet with an interesting textured surface.

What an incredible show @growlondon. Thank you for all your support- makers and customers. Take a look at our behind the scenes images, transforming a blank space into something quite beautiful.
We took great care in planning and preparation for the show, and this really paid off. Not only was this experience hugely enjoyable and stress free, there was a buzz and excitement around the Maud and Mabel space.
The big day arrives. Time to set up!
We were so thrilled people were interested as soon as we started to prepare the stand.
What would we do without our lovely Martin having a calm influence whilst he assembled the stand.
The Maud and Mabel aesthetic is beginning to take shape.
