My working life now revolves around my studio in Whitstable, Kent, which is housed inside an old bakery. Here I hand design every Keith Brymer Jones item (oh yes, it’s all very hands on!). I also throw shapes on my pottery wheel here for other designers in my job as Head of Design at MAKE International. It is in this role I have been lucky enough to collaborate with amazing designers and brands like Jane Foster, Scion, Hokolo and Designer’s Guild.

Once I am happy with each shape I have thrown on the wheel, I then travel to China with the finished prototype, where I work with our great team on the factory floor to ensure the products we mass produce maintain the same standards as the ones in my studio back home. All of the pieces in the Keith Brymer Jones ranges are then finished by hand.

My design philosophy is a simple one; I like to create stylish yet simple products that are pleasing to the eye and, above all, are practical in the modern home and make people happy! For me, less is more!

Keith recently featured as a judge on BBC Two’s The Great Pottery Throw Down and uses Royale Porcelain.
