I'm Steph Liddle, a Ceramics Designer/Maker based in Dundee, Scotland. With an eye for colour and pattern, I draw on my background in Illustration to create contemporary, graphic ceramic jewellery and homewares. Focussing on minimal shapes, combined with bold patterns and a limited colour palette, I create pieces which are easy to wear and live with. Working from my studio in a Victorian jute mill, each piece is individually made by hand to create simple and functional, yet beautiful, products to be cherished and used.
Designed to be multifunctional, the minimalistic nature of each object allows you to bring your own narrative to them and explore how they fit with your lifestyle. Each piece is hand-crafted using marble-smooth Parian porcelain clay, before using underglaze to hand-draw pattern and illustration directly onto the unfired work. The result is a collection of objects which sit together and interact with each other, but are equally strong alone.
The core theme of my work is the idea of ‘home’ and ‘home comforts’, especially the role of food, and many of my minimal patterns are inspired by culinary staples. For example, the recurring dash and curve motifs I use are inspired by rice and macaroni – classic comfort foods reduced to their most basic shapes!
Each piece is imperfectly unique, with subtle differences worth celebrating.
