East London–based Owen Wall, an honors ceramics graduate of the University of Wales Institute Cardiff, got his start producing tableware for Michelin-starred Shoreditch restaurant the Clove Club. He’s gone on to work with Lyle’s, Bao, and other favorite dining spots (and he’s poised to make a splash across the pond; recently, the Future Perfect in NYC picked up his line).
