WELCOME TO GREY SUIT CLAY

I am a Sheffield based Artist & Designer working to create unique and completely hand-crafted ceramic homewares. Using stoneware clay and a combination of stains and glazes, each piece is wheel-thrown.

From small multi-use dishes, to tableware, to domestic pot and planters - my focus is on creating well designed, well presented and above all, well made products. I take my inspiration from the most natural sources; plants, minerals and the basic properties of the materials I work with, to produce beautiful and versatile pieces that reflect my passion for quality craft.

THE DIP COLLECTION

THIS RANGE OF WORK IS CREATED WITH A FINELY SPECKLED STONEWARE CLAY, AND TAKES ITS INSPIRATION FROM BOTH THE HAZY COASTAL LANDSCAPES OF MY WELSH HOMELAND AND THE DRAMATIC ROLLING HILLS OF MY CURRENT YORKSHIRE HOME.

DESIGNED WITH STRONG, TAPERED LINES - THIS COLLECTION IS BOLD AND LINEAR WITH EACH PIECE STILL RETAINING THE UNIQUE MARKS AND VARIATIONS THAT COME FROM BEING HAND MADE.  

THE PALETTE IS MUTED WITH JUST THREE CRYSTALLINE GLAZES MIRRORING A GLOSSY, SMOOTH TRANSPARENCY AND LEAVING A TEXTURALLY PLEASING BAND OF 'RAW' EXPOSED CLAY.

 

THE CURVE COLLECTION

CURVE COLLECTION PIECES ARE WHEEL-THROWN IN A FINELY SPECKLED STONEWARE CLAY AND ARE DESIGNED TO BE SOFTLY SHAPED WITH A FOCUS ON TONE AND TEXTURE.

THE SMOOTHLY CURVED FORMS ARE COATED IN A BLEND OF GLAZES IN TONALLY COMPLIMENTARY COLOURWAYS, CREATING A LAYERED, CONSTELLATION LIKE EFFECT.  FINISHED WITH BOTH GLOSS AND MATTE TRANSPARENT SHEENS GIVING A MIX OF SATIN MATTE TEXTURES, EACH PIECE IS COMPLETELY UNIQUE IN ITS MARKINGS.
