Founded in 2010, Parasite Ceramics is a versatile ceramic practice based in East London with experience in the fields of graphics, ceramics, product design, and community engagement. We create site-specific ceramic artworks and unique limited edition bone china products that look to celebrate diverse communities, the cultural sector and one-off events.We seek to tell stories in new and imaginative ways, capturing the history and value of communities. The outcome results in various site-specific expressions ranging from graphic and product design to collaborative pieces, installations, and exhibitions. Our aim is to offer ceramics in a unique and tangible way that draws people in to connect once more with their surroundings.
