Harriet Elkerton Studio

Having decided to design a workshop for slip cast ceramics, I researched local makers to base a case study on. I arranged a visit to Harriet Elkerton’s Studio in the market town of Thame, Oxfordshire. The purpose of seeing a ceramicist at work in their own studio, was to observe the ergonomics and theatre of the working space at first hand. Harriet’s studio is situated in a converted garage. I found the methods Harriet uses to produce unique forms particularly interesting. More information can be found here.


Find object


Whilst exploring the site, I looked for an interesting object and found an old cast metal handle or lever that had been left at the of Castle Mill Stream. The next step is to record the object, explore how it was made, its qualities, purpose and journey.
