Located on London’s South Bank overlooking the River Thames, The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, County Hall Pottery marks a new chapter in the revitalisation of this historic site.

With a vision to celebrate and support the art of pottery in all its forms, the organisation - which has been funded by County Hall Arts 1, and which will be managed by Oxfordshire-based ceramicist Emma Louise Payne, and assisted by London-based artist Yasemin Gava - will prodivde offer a dynamic range of offerings including rotating exhibitions, pop-up markets, community engagement initiatives and a ‘potter in residence’ programme.

An expansive 1,800 square foot gallery space will serve as a hub for ceramics enthusiasts, artists, and the local community alike.

1 County Hall Arts’ mission is to advance the education of people in the arts for the public benefit. The work of the charity centres in particular on music, film, literature, architecture, the culinary arts and
agriculture. We believe the power of the arts informs and enhances societies beyond the boundaries of culture, geography and history. We are committed to a progressive, interconnected world that privileges wisdom and compassion.
