Maker's Story: Alice Duck of Duck Ceramics

January has been a month of firsts for us at The Global Creator. We announced England as our first destination collection. And we hosted our first Global Creator community event – the first of many to come in the year ahead.

It was a bright, chilly Wednesday morning when our group gathered at The Jones Family Project in London's trendy Shoreditch neighborhood.

We met, and spent the next two hours sharing ideas and finding those points in common that turn a group of mostly strangers into the start of a community.
