Krankpod is Samantha McEwan’s ceramics company. Samantha “draws inspiration for her work by studying organic objects such as pods, leaves and seeds.

“Original drawings are then translated into the clay using a method unique to her. Colour themes range from subtle to deliciously rich and vibrant.

“The use of contrasting gloss, satin and matt glazes makes her work tactile and inviting to touch, bringing a fresh approach to handmade ceramic design.”

She’s based in the Custard Factory and her work is available to the trade and on private commission.

I picked up her business card from the counter in the Custard Factory reception. Take note of that.
