Timea Sido

Biography

The distinctive ‘tangled’ pattern that has become my signature style was born of a moment when I witnessed a leaf flying into a spider’s web, shattering the symmetry into a mess of tangled lines.

Timea Sido is an award-winning designer who has been handcrafting intricate ceramic objects since 2002. She is driven by a desire to create simple yet elegant contemporary decorative objects that enhance the home.

Clients have included Kevin McCloud, Molton Brown, Kelly Hoppen, Aveda, Liberty, Fortnum & Mason and the Southbank Centre.

Born in the UK, but with roots in Hungary, Timea’s passion for design started at an early age with Saturday pottery classes. Timea graduated from Central St Martins College of Art and Design in 2001, but at this point was working in fashion and textile design.

It wasn’t until she joined the Cockpit Arts in 2002 that she started to translate her designs into clay. This explains why her ceramics have a wonderfully fluid, draped quality to them, often defying the conventions of traditional ceramics.
