  • Stuart Carey Ceramics

    London based master potter Stuart Carey produces stunning hand thrown Ceramics. A graduate of the Royal college of Art and winner of multiple awards, Stuart now boasts an international client base as well as being director of The Kiln Rooms ceramics studio and author of From Clay to Kiln.

    Originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, Stuart Carey had a ten year education in ceramics beginning with GCSE at school and culminating in an MA from the Royal College of art.

    Since developing his tableware range his work has been stocked in many stores across the UK including CAA, the New Craftsmen, Conran and Maud & Mable. He has also developed an international following with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘Goop’ taking up his range and a collaboration with Calvin Klein on a tableware collection for their Madison Ave store.

    In 2015 Stuart was awarded the Homes and Gardens designer award for ‘Use of materials’ and The ELLE Decoration British Design Award for ‘Best craft maker’ which has seen him well covered in press. In addition to this Stuart regularly writes for publications such as Ceramic Review and has a strong stance on the redevelopment of the crafts which informs his writing and teaching practise.

    Having worked on a limited collection with John Lewis as his first mass produced factory ware, in 2018 Stuart took a step back from the hand production of tableware to dedicate time to teaching and writing his first book ‘From Clay to Kiln’. This is available to order here.

    Recently Stuart has moved his private studio closer to home in South East London where he is developing a new, more conceptual body of work.

    Day to day Stuart can be found in Peckham at The Kiln Rooms which he co-owns and runs. ‘The Kiln Rooms’ is an open access ceramics studio and education venue. The aim of this new studio model is to make ceramics accessible to everyone, more information can be found at www.thekilnrooms.com

    Hand thrown in batch to order the series of semi porcelain stoneware vessels combine as beautiful high-end tableware for everyday use or purely display purposes. Lifted from the wheel while wet each piece is left with an individual movement making them completely unique whilst sitting comfortably in sets or families of scale.

    Each piece is made on a set of principles, a certain weight of clay, a common aesthetic and a given scale which means one can request several of one item and although each is unique, they fit within the given parameters for that piece.

    The colour palette of subtle blues, creams, lemons and beiges sit quietly and are never over bearing yet have a strength and familiarity with which user and viewer feel a comfort. The range is driven by feel and tactility making the pieces a pleasure to use as they offer themselves up to being handled.
