We thought we’d been around a while (this year marks our 20th Anniversary), but Star Pottery has been around for even longer - a whopping 30 years! In that time the owner, Mohamed Hamid, has perfected a style which we love, based around beautiful colours and brushy marks.
Based just 20 mins away in Lewes, the Star Pottery studio is tucked away in one of the town’s many alleyways. This one happens to be really close to the Lewes Arms pub, which serves a lovely cup of mulled wine in the colder months.
We love the simple elegance of Mohamed’s work. The forms are beautifully traditional, and fired to a really high temperature, so all his pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe.
The traditional forms are wonderfully complemented by the gorgeous patterns Mohamed decorates his pieces with, and his delicate choice of palette.
