About Studio Agni

Founded in the year 2023 by multi-disciplinary artist Funda Ersoysal, Studio Agni is an embodiment of the timeless values of craftsmanship, community, heritage, and sustainability. Inspired by her upbringing in Turkey, where sharing a meal with loved ones is considered a sacred tradition, Funda's artistic journey has culminated in creating functional ceramics that exude understated elegance and warmth, evoking cherished memories and the beauty of nature. Every vessel created by her reflects a primitive simplicity that is carefully crafted by hand, imbued with a unique character and charm.

Nestled in the idyllic and awe-inspiring landscapes of Cornwall, Studio Agni draws inspiration from the rugged coastlines, rolling hills, and prehistoric surroundings, paying homage to the ancient ways of living that celebrated the serenity and harmony of bygone times. The studio's creations, crafted with care, capture the essence of those ancient times and offer a glimpse into a simpler, more meaningful way of life.

She sources materials responsibly, employing handcrafted techniques to minimize the studio's carbon footprint.

From the Creator

As a responsible business owner, I am always exploring new solutions to make my business more sustainable while minimizing the carbon footprint left behind by Studio Agni. At the core of my business lies the values of connecting with people, practicing mindful consumption, understanding the land, and sourcing locally. Studio Agni is located in Cornwall, an ancient land, renowned for its abundance of clay. We are fortunate to have access to this ancient land, which is full of resources, history, and inspiration. Often, we underestimate the rich history and power of Cornwall. The air, the ocean, the rich soil, people and the peaceful atmosphere of the land have captivated me and made me fall in love with it. Therefore, I aim to give back to the community by respecting and enriching these qualities. For me, there is no place so raw yet so beautiful than Cornwall, and I try to reflect that in my creations.
