CLAY VESSELS ARE UTILISED AND CELEBRATED IN MANY FORMS THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY OF HUMAN CIVILISATION. ITS RICH HISTORY PLAYS AN ESSENTIAL ROLE IN MODERN LIFE, AS IT SERVES A PROFOUND PURPOSE AROUND THE PLANET.

 WITH A PROFESSIONAL APPROACH, MALCOLM HAS FORGED A WELL RESPECTED PATH INTERNATIONALLY, CREATING A LINK TO THE AGE OLD TRADITION IN BOTH THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY AND HOME TABLE.

 FROM MICHELIN CHEFS TO THE SMALL CAFE, HIS PASSION LIES IN THE FUSION OF CLAY, FOOD AND CONVERSATIONS AROUND THE TABLE. SKILLS PASSED DOWN FROM HIS MENTOR, MOKOTO YABE WILL BE SHARED AND HIS LOVE FOR ALL THINGS CLAY CELEBRATED.
