Matt and Catherine

Hi, we’re Catherine and Matt West. Pottery West is our ceramics studio which we work out of here in Sheffield, UK. Established in 2015, we design and craft small-batch wheel-thrown ceramic homeware with a emphasis on simple, ergonomic forms and tactile functional glazes. 

Inspiration is sculptural and painterly in the most elementary ways; texture, tone, light and form. 

We work mainly in stoneware and fire in an oxidised environment. Matt is the lead thrower; Catherine specialises in glaze development.
