Steph Liddle - Handmade Ceramics
Steph Liddle is a Ceramics Designer/Maker based in Dundee, Scotland predominantly working in Parian porcelain. With an eye for colour and pattern, she draws on her background in Illustration to create contemporary, graphic ceramic jewellery and homewares. Focussing on minimal shapes, combined with bold patterns and a limited colour palette, she creates simple and functional, yet beautiful, products to be cherished and used.
Each piece is hand-crafted using Parian porcelain clay before using underglaze to introduce hand-drawn pattern and illustration directly onto the work. From start to finish, each and every piece goes through a minimum of 9 steps before it’s complete, with care and detail at each stage. The result is a collection of ceramic jewellery and homewares which sit together and interact with each other, but are equally strong alone. Designed with functionality in mind, the minimalistic nature of the work allow the user to add their own narrative and explore how they use the objects, which can adapt and change to suit their needs as their home and lifestyle changes over time.
Her work is know for being playful, yet refined. Minimal in shape, yet boldly patterned. It embraces and embodies contrast through varying textures, finishes, and colour palettes.
Each piece is imperfectly unique, with subtle differences worth celebrating.
