Hi! I am Sam (Sam-I-am). 

I’m an artist based in Colchester, working within illustration & ceramics. My work celebrates playfulness with bright colours and cheerful (sometimes cheeky) characters. 

In 2020, I started developing my ceramic practice at my local shared community makerspace and I can't get enough of it. It feels so good to squish mud into a shape, cook it and have it emerge as something real and lasting!  

If you would like to work together, send me an email and let's have a chat.


I'm usually sharing new pieces, stock drop updates and giving an insight into my creative process on my Instagram page.  @madebysamelston
