SHOPPING & CLASSES
Pottery, it seems is having a moment. Check out Molde, a new site sourcing ceramics and studio pottery from across Europe. Chosen from both established potters and amateurs, there’s a beautiful selection such as these Vallauris clover side plates, below (£48).
And a recent addition to the scene is the just opened Studio Pottery London, the only central London public ceramic studio and part of Eccleston Yards. A shared ceramics studio which offers classes as well as workshop space for members, it is the brainchild of art consultant Lucy Attwood and potter Gregory Tingay, who was recently artist in residence at Hauser & Wirth in Somerset. The pair were introduced almost 10 years ago with Lucy, who was working at Christie’s at the time, learning to throw pottery with Gregory at his north London studio. In 2018, she set up Pop Up Pots, a mobile pottery studio, which has hosted workshops for Soho House and Daylesford. As well as offering one-to-one throwing sessions, taster mornings and four-week foundation courses, the studio also has a gallery space, curated by Lucy, where a number of pieces are for sale. As Lucy says, ‘We want to celebrate the handmade.’ Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get a place now (and get 20% off a bundle of 3 group classes).
