Dor & Tan

St Ives, Cornwall, UK

Sharron, Peter, Matthew, and Viola run the Dor and Tan Studio. Dor and Tan began from a desire to break away from the disposability of modern life, to create objects with a more personal connection.

'We want our items to become cherished memories, that favourite cup you always pick when boiling the kettle, the soup bowl you reach for after being caught in the rain. We want to bring handcrafted items to people, that have a unique soft character which cannot be created any other way than by the hand of a maker.'

The process of making is slow and thoughtful. Each object is thrown by hand from clay sourced locally and fired using green energy. These traditional processes make every piece unique, no two objects will be identical. When designing, the products are brought into their homes and used to see how tactile and functional they are, before being refined and developed into the final pieces.
