Anna Jones makes one-off functional ceramic pieces in stoneware, using hand building press moulding and casting techniques.
Inspired by simplicity of form from ceramic cups and bowls from the Chinese Tang Dynasty (618-907) and marbled surface decoration from contemporary American enamelled tableware, Anna strives to produce a beautiful object of use.
Charlie McKay. Jack of a few trades, not too bad at some. Mostly a full time food and lifestyle photographer Charlie occasionally still slips back into his old ways of freelancing as a senior designer/art director at the odd London design/advertising agency. Also a part time potter and full time canal boat dweller he is constantly covered in some sort of dirt, grease or food.
Inspired by pattern makers such as artists Anni Albers and Agnes Martin, Harriet Levy-Cooper’s work focuses on simple, functional shapes with pattern. She considers the clay itself beautiful so it is often a feature in her designs.
Harriet studied Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins and has since been practicing under the name Lazy Glaze. She has worked out of various studios in Hackney before joining Clay Collective.
Victoria Bridal is a graphic designer who's waking hours (and some of the sleeping ones too) are increasingly occupied by clay. She is excited by the prospects of combining her budding pottery skills with the other disciplines of art, fashion and textile design that make up her background.
