“Beautiful pieces, staff were nice and friendly, too.” – Crowley
Stephen Llewellyn Pottery has been potting professionally in Wallington for over 30 years and has made more than half a million pots during that time. His desire to eat and drink out of something made with his own hands led Stephen to produce his functional range of traditional stoneware. Having completed Stephen’s apprenticeship, he started his own pottery in 1977, building his own gas kiln and workshop.
Despite a setback when his kiln blew up and burnt down his workshop, Stephen has continued to strive to meet the increasing demand for local handmade pottery. He has also produced replicas of the medieval tiles that were found on the Merton Priory site, one particular design being a gargoyle apparently unique to Merton. Stephen is also actively involved in the work of Wandle Heritage.

“Reasonable and great for presents.” – Guy M.
Askew Pottery – Online Shop For Handmade Ceramics is all about colors, fluidity, spontaneity, and character. It is a solo potter, working in Dina’s home studio in West London, UK. She has been in pottery since 2016 and it’s been the most fascinating journey, full of challenges and rewards. There is that special feeling about handmade ceramics, when you know that a plate, bowl, or a mug you use has been made not by a machine but by the person, with care, passion, and love.
Dina genuinely hopes that people who come to her shop will be able to find something special for themselves or their loved ones and her ceramics will bring a bit more joy and beauty to their everyday life.

Klei is a shop founded by London based ceramicists Skye Corewijn and Jess Joslin. The name Klei is a nod to Jess and Skye’s South African roots and interprets directly to what the shop is all about clay. Jess and Skye have taken on the permanent space in Netil Market not only to sell their own work but as a platform for other ceramic artists and ceramicists whose work they love.
From July onwards Klei will welcome a new guest every month and invite them to take over a corner of the shop and make it their own. Whether it’s their much-loved pieces or an entirely new body of work, it’s a beautifully private space for them to express themselves with their work.
