People Care Earth Care

Global Independent Makers Ceramics Market


Over the past years there is one movement that has peaked our interest. The resurgence of ceramics has been felt around the world and exhibits a unique perspective of ancient ideals, contemporary creativity and human ingenuity. Fuelled by a natural human desire for tangible objects in a digitally saturated world, we believe the appreciation of these small objects whether functionally on your dining table or an ethereal object purely for looking at on a shelf give endless joy. We've been inspired by small makers from Norfolk to New York and gladly been a home to bring all these different perspectives together. This feature represents a small glimpse at the worldwide creativity being injected into this ancient and innovative discipline.
