Isabella Lepri CeramicsCeramist
I trained in Anthropology at the London School of Economics and for my PhD I spent 18 months researching village life in the Bolivian Amazon. I have always enjoyed making things and when I encountered ceramics in 2007 it was love at first touch. I took classes with Matt Sherratt at London's City Lit, with North London potter Ricky Grimes and Linda Bloomfield at Morley College. I set up my home studio in 2013. I live and work in North London, with my husband, 3 children and a cat.
My work is inspired by the tradition of British Studio Pottery. In my choice of forms and textures I strive for simplicity and spontaneity and allow the work to develop organically.
Each piece is hand thrown and glazed with traditional, lead-free glazes; each is unique and functional.
