Hoxton gardenware is a youth-led not-for-profit enterprise established at Troy Town Art Pottery in 2019. Commissioned by Create London and led by artist Aaron Angell and ceramicist Ned Davies, Hoxton Gardenware supports a group of six local young people from London to gain experience, skills and employment in the creative sector by training them to produce artisanal terracotta gardenware. Our aim is for these pots to sell at shops, nurseries and galleries across the UK, ultimately providing high-quality training and paid employment opportunities for local young people.

The designs of Hoxton Gardenware are inspired by functional British garden pottery stretching from the Roman to Victorian periods. Our approach is to use studio-pottery techniques rather than the processes of industrial design to produce high-quality indoor and outdoor garden terracotta. We are inspired by the history of Hoxton as London’s traditional nursery district, with Troy Town itself sitting on the site where the first plant was artificially hybridised in 1717 by nurseryman and gardener Thomas Fairchild.
