Stuart Carey Ceramics

Stuart Carey

 

Originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, Stuart Carey had a ten year education in ceramics beginning with GCSE at school and culminating in an MA from the Royal College of art.

Since developing his tableware range his work is now stocked in many stores across London including CAA, the New Craftsmen and Maud & Mable. His popularity continues to grow as the likes of The Conran Shop have featured his tableware in London and Paris.

 

Last year Stuart was awarded the Homes and Gardens designer award for 'Use of materials' and The ELLE Decoration British Design Award for 'Best craft maker' which has seen him well covered in press. In addition to this Stuart regularly writes for publications such as Ceramic Review and has a strong stance on the redevelopment of the crafts which informs his writing and teaching practise.

 

 

Currently alongside his own range Stuart is producing a stunning new tableware collection inspired by his elegant signature style for Calvin Klein New York, this sees him being recognised on an international level. He is also creating new markets in the U.S with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow's 'Goop' taking up his range. Closer to home, Stuart owns and runs 'The Kiln Rooms' an open access ceramics studio and education venue based in Peckham. The aim of this new studio is to make ceramics accessible to everyone, look out for more information at www.thekilnrooms.com

Born 1987, Newcastle Upon Tyne, England.
