Our Director, Jason Hercock has completed a deal on two commercial units for the award-winning ceramicist, Sue Pryke, as her homeware company secures its first retail premises.

Sue Pryke Studio, which designs and manufactures coloured porcelain ceramics for worldwide clients and is led by the former Great British Pottery Throw Down judge, will now be based at Evergreen Field Farm in North Kilworth after leases were agreed on two units, representing 2,409 sq ft space.

Jason comments: “Sue’s a hugely talented ceramicist with over 25 years’ experience supplying high end retailers and hospitality businesses with hand-made homeware. Since the lockdowns, the number of direct sales to customers significantly increased, leading to Sue’s decision for a dedicated space to continue growing her studio.

“Evergreen Field Farm is an established trading estate that’s fast becoming a ‘destination’ for independent retailers and manufacturers. It’s easily accessible from Lutterworth and Market Harborough, as well as the wider road network including M1, M6, M69, A14 and A5. With dedicated on-site parking also included, it offered everything Sue and the team were looking for and we wish them every success.”

Sue added: “A rural or village location really appealed so we were delighted to find the space at available at Evergreen Field Farm. The primary unit will be subtly subdivided so we can create our first ever retail premises at the entrance with production towards the rear. The second unit will be used for storing materials and as an on-site studio for our artisans. I also expect to start recruiting, specifically for roles in production, merchandising and sales. Wells McFarlane were efficient and helpful throughout, and have found a premises for my daughter’s business, Into the Eve too!”
