Handmade Limited Edition Ceramics

Handmade ceramic tableware & objects by Kate Smallshaw, made in Berlin. Each piece has been shaped, formed, pinched, rolled, smoothed and cut using traditional hand-building tools and techniques. Each piece has a tactility and uniqueness which cannot be compared to mass produced ceramics.

Each object is a piece of art for your day and your home.

Wobbly Gingham

The core pattern of the collection, applied on mugs, cups & plates.

Modern & Timeless

The designs of the pieces are made to last on both a practical and aesthetic level. These pieces should last years and with their modern but classic designs, they should compliment a tablesetting now and in years to come.

The New Signature

A selection of items glazed in my homemade Cocoa glaze. A rich, warm brown with shimmers of pink and blue, when held in the light.

Available on cups, mugs & coasters.
