Hello there, we are Peter, Sharron, Matthew, and Viola and we run the Dor and Tan Studio.
The story of Dor and Tan begins with a desire to break away from the disposability of modern life, to create objects with a more personal connection. We want our items to become cherished memories, that favourite cup you always pick when boiling the kettle, the soup bowl you reach for after being caught in the rain. Handcrafted items have a unique soft character that cannot be created any other way than by the hand of a maker.
You can find us nestled on the Northern Cornish coast, in the idyllic St. Ives. When not making ceramics we are exploring at sea in our sailboat and hunting and gathering in our local wilderness for inspiration for our next creative endeavour. Or pottering around in our sheltered garden growing fruits and veggies (and an almost ludicrous amount of chillies).
