Lyn Ang is an architect and ceramicist whose dualistic approach allows the work of one discipline to inform the other. 

 

The ceramics are wheel thrown, small batch, artisanal and thematic. Each batch of work is conceived of as a miniature architectural exploration of finish, form and functionality. 

 

Her focus is on a simplicity of form, derived through a process of reduction to what is necessary, functional and elegant - the making of objects that are pleasing to hold and use.

 

She graduated from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. After fourteen years of industry experience Lyn founded Piquant Collective Architects in 2019.

Sophie Alda an artist, designer, maker and facilitator working with:

-The production and development of objects exploring the relationship between the functional, the sculptural and the narratively suggestive, approaching materiality and tactility in a playful way, rejecting the hierarchy of the practically useful/ art object within craft or otherwise.

-Co-operation - creating the space and structure to facilitate production and community, skill sharing, interdisciplinary collaboration and independence in a precarious environment. She was a founding member of London's Clay Collective in 2015 and Counterslip Clay in 2019
