Isatu Hyde

Isatu Hyde is a designer and production potter. Her work is all made by hand at the potter’s wheel and her design language is firmly rooted in her traditional apprenticeship training in studio pottery.

The process of refining form and the challenge of improving hand-making skill drives Isatu, and the abstract,
sculptural aspects of pottery from around the world fascinate her endlessly.

Isatu’s work is most readily connected with food and home production, and is deeply influenced by often-ancient forms and processes that still have a huge relevance and resonance to our lives today.

Among her range is included sourdough baking bells, water-lock crocks, fruit-wine making bottles, kombucha
jars and kefir pots.

Isatu was part of the 2017 Walpole Crafted Class.
