Thomas Aitken and Kate Hyde collaborate on a range of tableware and accessories that unite Thomas’ strong forms and Kate’s interest in narrative and surface embellishment. 

Thomas and Kate’s work is designed to be both highly practical and visually intriguing. Their eclectic and playful imagery reference a variety of sources; including the history of ceramics, theatre, poetry and textile.

Each piece of their hand-produced porcelain is unique. It is intended to delight the eye, to please the touch and to satisfy the owner through time.
