Iona Crawford Topp was born and raised in North Yorkshire and grew up around a variety of crafts people, being exposed to making from such a young age proved a great inspiration and instilled a respect for materials. Iona collaborated with the House Restaurant team and created a collection of tableware that is simple, clean an earthy to reflect our eight-course tasting menu.
Iona ceramics is a new business based just outside the village of Ardmore. Made from white stoneware clay using a potters wheel then fire it in an electric kiln using glazes and slips Iona creates elegant and timeless pieces. Pottery production produces very little waste and what is not used is recycled. Lately, Iona has been using clay she finds on the beaches as a decorative material for some of her pieces.
