Steven Will’s pottery is located on the Suffolk coast, with much of his work rooted in the local landscape - Developing a colour palette and sourcing natural materials (mud, clays and wood ash) to decorate thrown and cast porcelain, the colours of the Suffolk coast.
We first commissioned Steven to create a set of cups which were used as part of our collaboration with Workshop Coffee. Steven worked closely alongside Richard of Workshop to make the most beautiful coffee cups that are not only inspired by the land but also by the alchemy of coffee making itself.

All work starts with walking, even the litter found on a walk can be transformed into something beautiful. The spoils of our throw away culture made permanent”. I am such a local scavenger!”.
From the coffee cup commission we have moved on to collaborate on some very beautiful projects.
Steven is one of the most romantic, poetic people I know. His affinity with nature is really quite magical.
