Ceramicist

Sneha’s passion of ceramics was sparked in school and she feels extremely lucky to have been able to focus on her passion following her retirement in 2021.

Most of Sneha’s ceramics are functional and colourful pieces which are made on the potters’ wheel with a few more playful, decorative pieces.

All Zalina’s decorative contemporary stoneware and ceramic pieces are handmade functional.

As a hobby potter she has great fun making a variety of shapes and sizes. The range ranges from plates, mugs, bowls and casserole dishes to birds and chickens to mention a few. She also enjoys the magic of pit firing.

Zalina collects ceramics for enjoyment not monetary value and is inspired by visiting other Open Studios Events and Ceramic Exhibitions where she can meet lots of fantastic potters willing to share their knowledge with you.

All proceeds from Zalina’s sales are in aid of St Luke’s Hospice and Macmillan Team.

Ceramic Artist

Nicole works in her garden studio using a variety of clays; stoneware, earthenware, porcelain and crank, in as many different ways as she can envisage; throwing, slab building, coil building and sculpting. She mixes her own glazes using oxides and stains to colour them. She likes to try out different glaze methods; dipping, spraying, painting and wax resist. Such a variety of materials and methods results in a variety of ceramic pieces; functional, sculptural, fun and serious, but all made with care and consideration of the final piece.

Nicole’s work reflects her life caring for two children with cystic fibrosis. To be successful (and sane) in this situation one must be flexible and rigid at the same time, with infinite patience, an enormous sense of humour and an appreciation of the importance of fun whilst dealing with serious situations.

To buy or commission a piece you can go through her website www.nlceramics.org and she will welcome the opportunity to go on a clay adventure together.

Ceramicist / Woodwork

Studio potters Adamina and Adrian aim to create tableware and cookware that is both beautiful and functional. They love an earthy modern rustic feel and let the beauty of wood and earth shine through in their products.

All ceramics are hand thrown by Adamina in their ceramics studio on a potters wheel and glazes are hand mixed to their own recipes. They use both electric and gas kiln to fire their work.

All their woodwork is made in their workshop by Adrian from sustainably sourced wood. Much of the wood has been sourced from Adamina’s grandmothers’s orchard in Resko, Poland

I would describe myself as a city dwelling country girl – whilst spending many years working in London following a career in publishing design, as a farmer’s daughter my heart is fuelled by all things natural, and hand crafted. I work from my cabin studio, next to an unkempt plant and creature filled pond at the bottom of my garden, I am both calmed and driven by the natural beauty that surrounds me.

As an experienced designer and art director, I have worked across a broad range of magazines over the years – from client-based contract publishing to fast paced newspaper weeklies, from glossy interior monthlies to glamorous haute-couture and stylish textile specials.

After more than decade of raising a family and exploring other areas of art and design, such as print making and ceramics, I am growing these budding creative seeds while also nurturing other people’s creative ideas. I became involved in education nearly a decade ago and am currently working in two prestigious schools in the area, supporting our young local creatives to expand and explore their minds and ideas. Every day is like a foundation course when you support young minds over the course of their learning and creating… and I LOVE it!

Hello I am N L Ceramics, it stands for: Nicole Lyster making pots 😊  I work in my tiny garden studio in Harrow creating all things made of clay.  I like my ceramics to be fun whether they are functional or sculptural, and I like them to have a story associated with their creation.  It might be an educational story about how I make and glaze them, a social story about why they came into existence, or a psychological story about how their creation helps me process the events that affect my life.  You can find more about me and my work on my Instagram page @nlceramics and through my website www.nlceramics.org

For more information about Nicole visit her Harrow Open Studios’ artist page here.

I am a ceramicist. I hand-built stoneware pieces, ranging from original, functional food safe serving bowls to sculptural pieces. A lot of my inspiration for my shapes, colours and textures are from the colours of the ocean and the corals found there.

My more modern swirl collections, are inspired by movement, and the lines of motion created when spinning. I don’t throw my pieces on a wheel. I love creating shapes and texture using moulds to start and then letting the shapes form, using coils, my hands and different tools to create shapes and texture.

Before I had my children, I was a graphic designer, working in advertising. Once I had my kids, I missed the creative outlet I had when working and decided to take an evening adult pottery class. This is when my love of pottery/ ceramics began… and I haven’t looked back!

I love creating an object, whether it is a functional bowl or a weird but interesting sculptural piece, which all started with just a ball of clay!
