Melisa Dora is a ceramic artist specialising in beautiful and versatile hand-thrown tableware, glazed in a fusion of vibrant and subtle colour combinations.

After graduating with a first class degree in ceramics and wood, Melisa went on to set up her own ceramics studio , working on a variety of tableware collections and freelance commissions for clients. She also teaches ceramic workshops in her London studio and enjoys passing on her own expertise and passion for making beautiful objects by hand. This has in turn informed her own professional development.

Melisa creates complementary coloured glazes, in a variety of textured and smooth finishes, which she mixes herself in her studio. These are layered onto simple forms to create crystalised surfaces and geometric patterns.

Melisa offers one to one and group sessions on the pottery wheel and handbuilding. ​

This was our first pottery class and we were both instantly hooked! Melissa helped guide us through the basics of throwing on the wheel and, by the end of the quickest hour and a half ever, we had made a selection of fantastic looking pots! She managed to perfectly balance teaching with allowing us to work and experiment independently. Her experience really showed by her ability to instantly recognise mistakes and help you correct them with clear and simple guidance. She is a very patient and talented ceramicist and we would highly recommend her classes to anyone wanting to start pottery. We absolutely intend to go back!

Melisa is such a friendly (offers tea and lovely conversation) and helpful teacher, and really makes you feel comfortable! She focuses on your mistakes and makes you learn through practice - and then you get to keep things you made after they're fired and glazed! Had an awesome experience would 100% recommend and visit again. Maria
