There might be obvious similarities between baking and ceramics, but former baker Lily Pearmain has found her creative calling in working with clay. Whether it be a mug or plate, the London-based ceramist loves to make everyday items for people to interact with.
Based out of Turning Earth‘s E10 studio, Pearmain’s minimal style incorporates simple and fun geometric patterns or one-colour glazes that accentuate the earthy quality of her stoneware creations.
Always open to experimentation, one of her first projects was a series of stoneware boobs (a percentage of sales was donated to breast cancer charity, CoppaFeel). Initially intended as garden sculptures, Pearmain soon realised their decorative – if somewhat conceptual – potential as indoor objects.
