The Ceramic House

Since 2011 Kay has been developing her project The Ceramic House – her home and a living showcase of her work. Each year she curates exhibitions of international contemporary ceramics in May during the Brighton Festival. Please visit the website for further information

The Ceramic House is unique in many ways; it is an unusual house, a gallery showing the highest standard of contemporary ceramics in a domestic setting and a venue for a variety of events. Launched in 2011, it is an award-winning house (AOH 2013) and continues to inspire and delight everyone who steps inside. The house and garden are continually evolving, with new permanent ceramic installations appearing every year, so in addition to the changing exhibitions each May, it is always new and exciting for visitors. Different emerging and established artists are sought every year according to the theme and the work is carefully curated and professionally presented to create a harmonious show within the setting of the house and garden.

In 2016, a ‘white cube’ gallery, In Camera, was inaugurated (converted from the former garage in the garden), offering a neutral  space for installations and providing a space for events. In Camera website here.

The Ceramic House also offers unique accommodation and attracts visitors from across the world to experience what it feels to live in an artwork! We welcome visitors from all around the world for visits from one night to several months and have four rooms to choose from, two en suite and two with shared bathroom (all fabulously tiled of course!).
