Daniel Smith

Since graduating from the celebrated Harrow Ceramics course in 1994 Daniel has worked from the same East London studio he helped establish. The continuity is reflected in his work with a commitment to exploring the same family of useful forms plates, bowls, cups, jugs, vases. All pieces are hand-thrown porcelain with a pared down aesthetic just occasionally emphasised with some simple decoration. With quiet dedication Daniel has built up a loyal international following over the years, his work appealing to both collectors and those who like beautiful, eminently functional objects for everyday use.
