Based in East London, Blue Guy was born out of a love of craftsmanship, design
and experimentation. Following her introduction the the world of ceramics in 2013,
Thidaa Roberts, also an Architect
, founded Blue Guy in November 2014. Thidaa
has been carefully refining and advancing her throwing skills and design
sensibilities ever since, resulting in a unique mix of natural materials, bold colours
and excellent functionality.
Every piece is lovingly hand-made by Thidaa in her studio: a chunk of clay is spun
on the wheel, the design refined through turning, the end result hardened through
bisque firing and then finished using carefully controlled glazing. While several
pieces can be made in each small production run, part of the charm is that an
element of serendipity throughout the production process introduces individual
differences to make each item truly a one-of-a-kind object.
Blue Guy is always up for a challenge – please contact her for bespoke
commissions. Need a small cup for your loved one? No problem. A family of
homeware for your bar or cafe? Done. Just want to say hi? That’s cool too.
