KILN FOLK THREE YOUNG POTTERS TAK­ING THE CRAFT TO NEW HEIGHTS

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style The Britlist -

The ar­chi­tec­tural potter Emma Payne

Since re­turn­ing from an ap­pren­tice­ship in Copen­hagen, 29-year-old Payne has been pro­duc­ing work for ar­chi­tect Si­mon Astridge’s work­shop as well has her own pieces. We love ‘Tilt’ (right), her witty tea set – the cups stand up­right when full, tilt­ing as they empty, to show your host you’re due a re­fill (em­malouise­p­a­yne.com).

The table­ware maker El­liott Denny

Perus­ing 27-year-old El­liott Denny’s thrown table­ware is a sooth­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. His col­lec­tion of util­i­tar­ian porce­lain plates, bowls and carafes is soon to be joined by sim­i­larly min­i­mal­ist mugs with chalky ex­te­ri­ors. Keen to spread the word of the wheel, Denny holds classes at his Thames-side stu­dio (el­liottce­ram­ics.com).

The porce­lain origamist Toby Gas­coyne

At shared stu­dio The Kiln Rooms in Peck­ham, Lon­don, Gas­coyne of Meiro Ce­ram­ics uses sliv­ers of porce­lain like pieces of pa­per, slic­ing and fold­ing them to con­struct del­i­cate vases and bowls, fin­ished with a glossy glaze, that merge crock­ery with art (meiro ce­ram­ics.com; thekil­nrooms.com).
