Studio pottery vs the high street
Variety and affordability
It is now possible to purchase a wide range of household products - ceramic tableware included - covering every imaginable taste and occasion. In the UK alone, retail outlets such as (Terence Conran's) Habitat, Liberties, John Lewis, Heal's and Purves & Purves have done much to bring well designed, affordable tableware and household goods to a far wider audience. Combining high quality merchandise and inspirational, modern designs with affordability.
Something out of the ordinary
Although they are amongst my favourite stores, when it comes to finding something out of the ordinary or unique for a special occasion such as a meaningful anniversary or wedding gift, a special present for friends and loved ones birthday or valentines surprise, then the mass market retail outlets may not always provide the best solution.
Kilnworks - making it even easier
This is the aim of kilnworks handmade tableware gifts
Is to provide a source for unique, handcrafted gifts online, through a network of craft galleries UK wide and to make contacting and buying kilnworks tableware and pottery as simple as possible. Alleviating the only draw back to purchasing handmade crafts - finding more work by the same artist or craftsperson.
Finding more handmade crafts in the UK
Craft outlets in particular sell a diverse range of jewellery, furniture, glassware, textiles and pottery and you are sure to find something unique - as well as investing in the many craftspeople at work all around Britain.
You should visit the British Crafts Council website for more information on British arts & crafts and studio pottery in particular.
