Sue Ure Ceramics is an entirely hand-thrown range of tableware, vases and lampshades available from stockists in several countries in Europe and further afield. The skills acquired over decades are applied at every stage of the making process: from turning and handling to glazing and firing. I develop my own glazes and slips and new glazes are always an area of ongoing research.
I have created bespoke collections for clients such as Tate Enterprises, The Royal Academy shop and for the William Morris Gallery. Bespoke collections for professional and private clients are frequently the impetus inspiring new directions; the William Morris Commission inspired a new sgraffito-decorated range of tableware.
My work is informed by the minimalism of postwar ‘mid-century’ design as well as northern European design, from Bauhaus to Arabia.
My aim is to produce stylish and enduring design with comfortable functionality.
