Ceramics Sculpture Studio is an intimate, creative space accessible to anyone who shares a passion for clay and ceramics, from total beginners to professional artists.
Our classes and workshops are a creative journey through the medium of clay, covering techniques from hand building, throwing on a pottery wheel to glazing and firing. Our mission is to create beautiful ceramics artwork and to cultivate a great sense of well-being and personal growth. And of course, one of the best rewards of practicing with clay is that it’s just plain fun.
The studio is located in the heart of West Hampstead, in a beautiful Victorian Warehouse, under the patronage of Kingsgate Workshops Trust.
Ceramics Sculpture Studio opened in 2015 and is founded and run by Cosmin Ciofirdel.
Cosmin Ciofirdel is a ceramic sculptor and potter designer who's passion for ceramics and love of making come from his childhood when playing on a riverbank discovered for the first time clay. Since then, he never stopped exploring, learning and sharing from his experience and knowledge with others.
Cosmin founded Ceramics Sculpture Studio with an ambition to promote creativity through the medium of clay.
