Parasite Ceramics

East London based Parasite Ceramics practice was founded in 2010 by Central Saint Martins graduates Simeon Featherstone and Anastasia Sledkova.

An innovative approach to telling stories is at the heart of their work. Parasite Ceramics’ versatile bone china tableware pieces reflect the wonderfully varied surroundings that they work in whether it is industrial London, suburban Surrey or historic Edinburgh. Each collection tells a story of a particular place as seen through their own eyes. Every product offers a visual commentary to past projects & events, to a revealed history, and to the people and places that inform them.

With combined experience in the fields of ceramics, graphics, product design and community engagement, Parasite Ceramics offer ceramics in a unique and tangible way that draws people in to connect once more with their surroundings. Their past collaborations include the Bloomsbury Festival, Handmade in Britain, Farnham Malting as well as The British Museum, British Ceramics Biennial and many others.
