STUDIO POTTERY

Studio pottery is a new take on an age-old craft, where modern and advanced technology is adopted in the process of making pottery, and artists create one-of-a-kind pieces in limited quantities.

A large portion of studio pottery is dinnerware or cookware, although an increasing number of studio potters also create non-functional or decorative products.

This form of pottery has gained popularity in recent years, especially when it comes to home decor.

STUDIO POTTERY: FEATURES & TRENDS

Meditative for some, a hobby for others and a source of livelihood for still more, studio pottery is getting increasingly common.

Several restaurants and cafes commission potters to create ceramics that bring uniqueness to their dishes.

Decorative ceramics are also making it to boutique shops and business establishments.
