Ken Eastman is a studio potter who specialises in slab-built stoneware vessels. His innovative collaboration with Royal Crown Derby sees his characteristic forms translated into bone china, which is notoriously difficult to control during firing. The pieces were decorated with designs inspired by the factory’s historic patterns, including the famous ‘Imari’ design in gold, red and blue.
