Kate Malone's recommendations for Open Studios

We welcomed some very special visitors to our studios during October for our Stars on Starting Out talks and we took the opportunity to ask them for their recommendations for must-sees at our Open Studios in November. First up, we asked ceramics super start Kate Malone, what she would take home.

''I loved my visit to Persistence Works last month and was most taken with the amazing work of the two ceramicists I met. Penny Withers’ vessels are so evocative of heathland, the colours are just sublime and I love the way the base curves. Victoria Dawes’ pudding bowls must be the perfect gift for a ceramics-loving baker and it was great to be able to see every stage of the process taking place in her studio. Artists and makers in Sheffield are so lucky to have a permanent facility like this from which to work, run with love and commitment. ‘’
