Pottery West is the ceramics studio of English couple Catherine and Matt West. Since 2013 they have been designing and making turned tableware, working mostly in stoneware and firing in electric kilns, although they have recently started using a wood-fired oven for their work.
The inspiration is sculptural and pictorial; texture, tone, light and shape. The question of function is at the heart of their design process. They spend a lot of time imagining the context in which their ceramics will be used.
