British-born, Goldsmiths-trained and now New York-based ceramicist Romy Northover is killing it at her craft. Describing her work as emotional and personal, Romy employs a Japanese technique known as Rokuro (throwing clay with a wheel that spins the opposite way to the Western world) which she learnt after moving stateside. She combined this procedure with her existing European skillset to create pieces that are natural, simple and elegant. Her light touch has attracted her worldwide attention and earned her a client list that boasts names such as Calvin Klein Home, The Store and Soho Farmhouse.
It’s hard to pick a favourite piece from her collections; cobalt blue vases, pint-sized pots with distinctive and emotive brush strokes and contrasting super-luxe shiny gold pieces created in collaboration with Alex Eagle: these are all vessels that will last a lifetime.
