If you missed out on Henry Holland’s stylish ceramics back in March, then fear not. Henry Holland Studio has just restocked the sought-after collection, and the objects are live on his online store right now.
Yes, we have a fleeting opportunity to fill our kitchens with rustic – but no less stylish – home decor pieces – that ooze with a rare sophistication and will be the talking point of your summer dinner parties. Among the handcrafted pieces available are Henry’s celebrated ceramic bowls –in a new colorway, and striking mugs that are sure to elevate your morning coffee experience.
Recognize Henry Holland from the fashion industry? Yes, us too. The London-based designer was formerly the Creative Director of esteemed fashion label House of Holland, but he fell into ceramics whilst taking a break from fashion during the pandemic.
Like many of us, Henry found himself working from his kitchen table; however, unlike many of us, this work involved mastering the Nerikomi technique, which originated in Japan. Nerikomi stems from the traditional method of forming colorful patterns with clay – as showcased in Henry Holland’s collection.

The slow nature of the Nerikomi technique means every piece is indisputably individual and exhibits contrasting color combinations from the different earthenware clays, so no two objects are the same. These diverse hues form signature patterns and are reminiscent of the prints and colors that made Henry Holland so established in the creative industry.
In the discussion of his newfound adoration for pottery and his previously sold-out collection, Henry shared that he was ‘overwhelmed in the studio with feedback from customers.’
‘I thought ceramics was going to be a slower pace of life, but it’s already been one hell of a ride, making night and day to keep up with demand and trying to set myself up in a new London studio at the same time – but I really wouldn’t want it any other way,’ he says.

‘I hope I’ve created a collection that has a real stand out in the market and brings a new crowd to explore ceramics… It’s an industry that I’m constantly learning from and being inspired by, it feels altogether freer than fashion in many ways, and I’m excited to see where I can take the collection next,’ Henry adds.
Henry Holland has just restocked this collection, and you can pre-order pieces from the Studio from today, June 11th. The collection is also now available for international delivery.
