English Sue Pryke started her ceramic journey in a small pottery in Lincolnshire where she learned everything about ceramics. In her final year of university she took part in a national competition and won a travel bursary to see production techniques in factories in Europe, and a work placement with Wedgwood. Which led to a fulltime position as a shape designer. On this journey her fascination for repetitive forms began. Her designs are of a high quality, have warmth, are simple and pared down with an understated elegance.

“I’m inspired by the everyday and the ordinary; material qualities, textures and the interaction we have with objects. Small details and preferences which reflect the intuitive decision making we all make on a daily basis when choosing what cup to take from the cupboard for a cup of tea.”
