Forest and Clay are a small design studio and workshop in the Cheshire countryside. We specialise in creating handcrafted luxury furniture, pottery, and homewares. We uphold ourselves on quality craftsmanship by favouring traditional joinery methods and focusing on the beautiful rawness of materials.
Hand thrown on the pottery wheel in small batches, Anna creates unique and contemporary pieces to treasure in the home. Embracing the rawness of the material and focusing on the simplicity of the forms.
Our bespoke design services for fitted cabinetry and furniture allow us to create unique pieces tailored to your home. We are bringing functionality, exceptional design, and craftsmanship together. We source the finest sustainable FSC-certified hardwoods and sheet materials for our projects.
