Lydia Johnson established Fettle Studio in 2018, as a small creative venture to pursue opportunities for design and making between architecture and ceramics.

At her studio, based at the Clay Collective in Hackney Downs, she enjoys working with clay and plaster to create slip-cast vessels which are both functional and sculptural. She works between scales, creating pieces as small as one individual cup,  to large tessellating arrays of geometric forms. Following this theme, she personally co-curated a major exhbition at the Building Centre in 2019, entitled Hand Held to Super Scale: Building wth Ceramics.

Lydia is also an architect and product designer at Citizens Design Bureau. Here she puts her passion into practice as part of a collaborative, multi-disciplinary team, developing products, installations and creative design processes, alongside architectural projects in community, housing and arts.
