About the Maker

Zuleika Melluish has always immersed herself in the decorative arts with particular fascination in the Arts and Crafts movement, and Persian painting, craft and pottery. After many explorations working with different forms and medium, it was her first pottery class a few years ago that left her smitten: 'Little could beat the age-old alchemy that takes what is essentially earth and transforms it into a useful and beautiful object.' Zuleika found that in working with clay she could blend and experiment with the themes that she liked best within the visual arts, allowing her to use her interests in surface decoration and artistry to create functional pieces.


She now focuses on ceramics full time, making one-off and small batch ceramics from her studio in Kentish Town, London.
