Katie | February 15, 2017

Design Geek editor Katie Treggiden was invited to home of British pottery, Stoke-on-Trent last week for a whirlwind tour by designer and ceramicist Reiko Kaneko. Reiko spent her childhood in Japan and studied at London’s Central Saint Martins – she relocated from the capital to Stoke-on-Trent to be part of the creative community and two centuries of knowledge that has built up around The Potteries. Her products include fine bone china, glassware, terracotta, and white china dipped in rich glazes mixed to her own recipes to create unique studio pieces.
