Kara Leigh Ford Ceramics: A Maker’s Story4 CommentsRead more
From trying out pottery during an after-work evening class, to making it to the final round of auditions for last year’s The Great Pottery Showdown, Kara Leigh Ford’s journey to becoming a full-time potter, creating stunning pieces inspired by her love of the sea, is both uplifting and inspirational. Who hasn’t dreamt of giving up the 9 to 5 for a new life?
We are huge fans of her beautifully made work, which fuses a fresh, modern, Scandinavian-style colour palette with organic forms. The glazes and hand-thrown nature of Kara’s work makes it invitingly tactile; making everyday routines that bit more special.
