Polly Fern is an illustrator and ceramicist living in Suffolk. Her work spans from pottery to paintings, prints and tableware. Her pieces are feminine and intricate, inspired predominately by local, historical and childhood stories. She’s displayed her work in galleries around the world including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and The New Craftsmen in London. Polly recently had her first solo exhibition and pop-up shop at Pentreath & Hall in London.
With visiting still on hold for the time being, we asked Polly to be a part of our ‘At work with’ series from afar. Join us on a tour of Polly’s beautiful pink house in the heart of the Suffolk countryside.
