Meet the maker David & Clare Rhys Jones

Blackbird Studio are David and Clare - with occasional guest designers!
We are based in Lewes - the beautiful and historic county town of Sussex in the south of England.

We make a range of ceramics and jewellery (felt, enamel, printed cotton etc)

David trained at Central Saint Martins and has exhibited widely, including the V&A Museum, the Royal Academy of Arts and the Courtauld Institute. In 2010 he was joint winner of the Jerwood Contemporary Makers Prize, and his work is held in many private and public collections, including the Tate (artist's book).

Clare also has an arts background and currently works in an Architecture School, having completed a fine art foundation course.

We love well made and thoughtful designs and aim to offer an eclectic mix of inventive and original work.
