From plates and bowls to mugs, spoons and small pouring pots, Ana Kerin’s handmade ceramics might be just what you’ve been searching for. Unique, playful and full of character, this collection is perfect for dinner parties, everyday use and bringing an element of fun to your coffee table.
Out of her London Fields-based studio, Kana London Studio (which now accommodates a large team working for the brand as well as a range of workshops throughout the year), Slovenian-born sculptor Ana is all about soft tones, raw textures and hand built aesthetics. Throw in a bit of gold leaf here and there, a few fun words and the result is just plain beautiful!
“I’m interested in de-artifying the object. I love a raw aesthetic and even when I was making sculpture, I would leave my fingerprints on the work for a more tactile surface. A good potter is trying to achieve perfection, but I want each one of my ceramics to be different.” – Ana
Used by a growing fanbase of chefs and foodies in recipe books, personal blogs and Ig accounts – from Jamie Oliver to Ottolengi, Hemsley & Hemsley to Vogue UK as well as a couple of our favourites – Sarah B of My New Roots and Tieghan Gerard of Half Baked Harvest – Ana’s pieces are well-known on the foodie scene, to say the least.
Her collab with figurative drawing artist Alexa Coe resulted in beautiful one-off pieces: Shop here
Speaking of nudes! Stay tuned for Kana London’s Nude collection (out soon and available to buy from KL’s online store), we were given the privilege of having a sneaky peak:
