About us

Sam moved to St Ives, West Cornwall in 2013 to take up a position with the Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth museum. Previous to this Sam worked within the visual arts in London for over ten years having studied Art history at the Courtauld institute of art. 

During her time in St Ives Sam has built up a keen interest and knowledge of Cornish artists and local craft ware. This coupled with her passion to promote the work of local ceramicists and designers led to her setting up St Ives Homeware in 2016.

Sam is largely responsible for finding new and unique products along with all the book keeping. 


Peter is responsible for all the photography, website, packaging design and all things IT. He moved to St Ives in 2014 having previously worked behind the scenes in television in London. 

"Cat" moved to Cornwall in 2014 with Peter, having previously lived in Brockley, South East London. She is responsible for team building and for charming our clients and contributors when they come round for cups of tea.
