Naked Clay Ceramics

Naked Clay Ceramics is inspired by the natural colours and textures of the earth, a collection of quiet, tactile, minimal-style tableware and homeware in black stoneware and white porcelain.

Carla Sealey makes everything in Naked Clay Ceramics at her studio in Bedfordshire. Her range includes stoneware mugs, plates, wildflower vases, and neutral hues that combine hand-building and slip-casting clay.

Sealey’s pieces don’t conform to the symmetrical perfection found in factory-made items, making each of these individual and unique.

The pieces are fired with no glaze on the outside so that the clay can feel appreciated and natural, to provide their owners with a tactile connection and the opportunity to pause, breathe and savor a small moment in life.

She hand makes a limited number of items 3 to 4 times a year available online and at events, with each small batch crafted with care.
