About

How Esther Ceramics Began...

Esther Ceramics began in January 2019, when I went along to my local Makerspace in Colchester and joined a throwing workshop. From that point on, I knew that clay had endless possibilities to be anything and forming functional items was really satisfying to me.

The name 'Esther' comes from my first childhood friend. I felt it was very fitting to name my ceramic business this, as I felt I was starting all over again in the art world (I previously was a Fine Art painter) and I wanted to connect that with being young again, with the world in front of me.

My pieces started out as little wonky pots, but as the months have gone on I feel like I have been able to improve and find staples that I enjoy making. I've just started making tableware, which has been a new challenge and I thoroughly enjoy it. Although I will still continue to experiment and play around with ideas until I find cult products I want to invest more time in.

Occasionally there will be test pieces for sale on my Etsy, such as glazes I didn't choose to go forward with or I preferred a different design. These pieces will be available for discounted rate on the shop or over on my Instagram @estherceramics.
