Our focus is throwing – working with clay on the wheel. The studio also provides space for hand-building.
This traditional craft provides a counterbalance to the hyperactive, mechanised, and technologically saturated metropolis. The hands-on practice of throwing opens dormant creativity and encourages therapeutic transformation.
Engaging with clay, the practitioner slows down, assimilating technique and mastering knowledge through careful repetition. It is a holistic, gradual and joyous experience, connecting the potter to a living history of human making. Our lineage flows directly from Bernard Leach and the 20th Century revival of studio pottery – enshrined in our name.
At the heart of Studio Pottery London is the desire to form a community around a shared ethos and love of pottery in all its forms.
