Open Studio: Porcelain lighting handmade on Shoreham Beach
Tucked slightly off the beach in an unassuming cul-de-sac, you’ll find Amy Frankie Smith and her porcelain studio full of innovative lighting.
“I fell in love with porcelain, its softness, its pure white tones and most of all its delicious translucency. When porcelain ceramic is very thin the light shines through it, giving a beautiful, warm diffused light’, explains Amy.
Amy’s hand crafted lights showcase the natural quality of translucency in porcelain. Beautifully simple designs are brought to life with delicate attention to detail and the precision required to handle this, the finest of clays.
The Open Studio is a special opportunity to meet Amy in her workshop and see the full collection. Pendants, wall lights, lamps as well as prototypes and seconds available to purchase.
Open Studio is on Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th November from 11am to 4pm, at Flux Surface Studio, 6 Flag Square, Shoreham Beach, West Sussex, BN43 5RZ. It is a short walk across the footbridge from the centre of Shoreham and if coming by car there is easy street parking. Tea and cake and a warm welcome guaranteed.
