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.
