sue candy ceramics

From a studio at the bottom of my garden in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, I design and make contemporary ceramic tableware.

My work is handmade from porcelain slabs, and decorated using a variety of techniques including metal lustre painting and decal printing. Some of my pots are topped with a slate lid. Each piece is finished with a transparent glaze and fired in my kiln to 1240°.

My reputation is built on the clean geometric shapes and delicacy of my designs, applied with a subtle palette. My inspiration is drawn from Japanese and Scandinavian influences, with the sea and coastal birdlife becoming an increasingly central theme.

Both functional and decorative, I call my pots mustard, chutney, salt and pepper etc., but the uses to which they can be put are limited only by your imagination!

All my products are individually handmade with care, and as with all handcrafted work each piece is therefore unique.
