Ben Sutton, Teacher

Ben Sutton is ceramics designer/maker based in East London. His work ranges from tableware to decorative bowls and vases, with an aesthetic that fuses Scandinavian design with Japanese simplicity. Working exclusively in hand-thrown porcelain, he aims to make work that is visually bold yet elegant and tactile.

Ben has been attracted to the unique qualities of high-fired porcelain since the beginning of his practice; how its smooth texture, translucency and whiteness complement and emphasise a clean form. His work makes use of both glazed and unglazed surfaces, juxtaposing the warmth of the matt surface with the sharpness of a glossy, translucent glaze.

Ben has a Masters in Geology from Oxford University and brings a strong scientific approach to glaze development at Turning Earth. You can see more of his work in our online gallery or on his website. He can also be contacted at
