York Ceramics Fair is an exciting new showcase presenting the best in contemporary studio ceramics from the UK and beyond.


This is a rare opportunity to buy beautifully hand-crafted pieces direct from 40 leading contemporary makers.

Discover hundreds of pots, to fall in love and take home, during this special weekend, from teapots, vases and jugs of all shapes and sizes, to quirky figures for the fireplace, and large sculptural artworks – all of which reveal the versatility of this popular artform.

Get hands on and be inspired by demos and talks from the makers themselves, who will show you how raw clay can be pinched, carved, rolled, thrown and transformed through their craft.

Minimalist design lovers will adore the simplicity of Karen Downing’s hand thrown porcelain tableware, these exquisite everyday pieces are inspired by her childhood on the New Jersey coast.

The alchemy of glazing and firing results in a myriad of textures, finishes and colours and this is a chance to take a closer look at the work of two of the UK’s leading saltglaze studio potters, Jane Hamlyn and Ruth King.

Jenny Southam’s adorable figures reference her fascination with Staffordshire mantelpiece figures, described as ‘odd, eccentric and humorous’ they are influenced by time spent in her garden.

Makers have been carefully selected by the Craft Potters Association and collectors of all budgets will find something to take home with them.
