We’re friends Melody Brunton of Emi Ceramics and Samee Lapham, an avid collector and photographer.

Through Sydney Ceramics Market, we aim to celebrate and bring together an array of local artists and makers. Sydney’s ceramic scene has been growing steadily over the last two decades — with a new renaissance of artists and makers creating exciting and dynamic clay-based works.

We cherish and use handmade pieces and objects in our own homes that we’ve collected over time, from mugs and tableware, to colourful sculptural pieces that all bring joy and character.

Noticing a gap in Sydney’s celebration of ceramics, we were inspired to create Sydney Ceramics Market to bolster the wide range of incredible ceramic work we’ve fallen in love with.

We hope you’ll join us for our 2023 event, to meet and support local independent Sydney & NSW makers, and take home something to treasure!
