Meet the Maker
Timea Sido is an award-winning designer maker who hand crafts intricate contemporary ceramic objects. “I am driven by the desire to create elegant pieces, that are beautifully hand crafted and showcase my signature ‘tangled’ pattern and in so creating a unique collection of accessories for the home.” Born in the UK, but with roots in Hungary, Timea’s passion for design started at an early age with Saturday pottery classes. Timea graduated from Central St Martins College of Art and Design, and started working in fashion and textile design. It wasn’t until she joined the prestigious Cockpit Arts’ Studios in 2002 that she started to translate her designs into clay. This explains why her ceramics have a wonderfully fluid, draped quality to them, often defying the conventions of traditional ceramics.
Her distinctive ‘tangled’ pattern that has become her signature style was born of an occasion in her garden when she witnessed a leaf flying into a spider’s web, shattering the symmetry and intricacy into a disarray of tangled lines. Timea developed an innovative technique to capture this moment in time and replicate this intriguing new interlaced pattern. The technique involves individually layering delicate fine white earthenware clay lines to construct a three-dimensional filigree surface.
