Sue Pryke’s background is “firmly rooted in the crafts,” as she says. “I started my journey into ceramics at a small pottery in Lincolnshire, learning the skills of production throwing.” She’s worked at Wedgwood and as a product design consultant; not long ago, she launched her own line of finely detailed everyday items. “I wanted to create my own collection of objects that sit comfortably in the home, that aren’t awkward, audacious, or tricky to use or care for, but are familiar, have fluency, and sit effortlessly.” We especially admire her subtly luxurious tea set, made from slip-cast porcelain with oak detailing; plus a companion pewter milk pourer.
