Kana Store’s sacred vessels

Our grandmothers used to say that a dropped plate was considered good luck, but if those plates are crafted by ceramicist Ana Kerin of Kana London we’d feel something more akin to tragedy. With a background in sculpture and fine art, Kerin launched Kana London in 2012 in a sunlit loft space in Hackney as a place to sell her ready to buy and made to order artisan ceramics. Looking at the shelves of clay ready for the kiln, it’s comforting to know Kerin’s love for “tactile, hand built aesthetics”  is still present in a world of mass production. Pick up a mug for your next filtered coffee, or a pot for your next succulent. Then never let go.
