JENNY MITCHELL CERAMICS
Welcome to my new website.
Original, colourful hand painted ceramics, prints, scarves and cards.
Monday 19th July 2021 easing of restrictions.
I think it’s wise to proceed with cautious optimism.
I have found the booking system for visiting and click and collect on my website invaluable, as I know when your’e visiting, and you do too, it’s easy to cancel and rebook if need be.
Slots can be booked at short notice and If you would prefer me to book them for you, just get in touch.
Please could I ask you not to visit without a pre booked slot, I might not be there!
I will wear a facemask to help make sure you continue to feel safe when visiting my studio, and for now, I am going to recommend a maximum of two people in my studio at any time.
Bookable opening hours:
Monday: 10:00 - 16:00
Tuesday: 10:00 - 16:00
Wednesday: 10:00 - 16:00
Thursday: 10:00 - 19:00
Friday: 10:00 - 16:00
Saturday: 10:00 - 15:00

I’m really looking forward to continuing to safely welcome more of you back into my studio, and I’d like to thank you all for your ongoing support in these uncertain times.
I will be continuing to do commissions so please do get in touch if you need a special gift.
I will continue selling items through my online shop, with click and collect bookable via the ”Book online” section of my website, for collecting items purchased online from outside my studio.
POSTAGE AND COLLECTION
Currently my website shop is set to collection only. If you live relatively close by, and are able to pick up any items purchased, this is the safest way to get your pottery and can be done in a COVID safe way, picking up prepaid items from outside my studio, click and collect is operational and can be booked through the "Book online" button at the top of my website. If you would like me to send an item in the post, please get in touch and I can calculate the cost of P&P.
I qualified with a B.A. Hons degree in Printed Fashion Textile Design at Central School of Art, London in 1987.
I have since diversified, painting, glazing and firing ready made bisque pottery in my studio.
My passion in life is colour and pattern and being half Greek, I am strongly influenced by Mediterranean colours and light and the sea.
I enjoy painting utilitarian ceramics which complement the colour of food, or just light up the day in the depths of winter.
I use three main techniques, and sometimes a combination.
Wax resist, Sgrafitto, and bottle and nib line drawing and painting. I also use my designs on scarves, prints, cards, tea towels and commissions.
Everything you buy from me is designed, hand painted, glazed and fired by me and only available through me, and no two works are the same.
All rights are reserved on my work, including commissions.
I am available for Birthday, Anniversary and Wedding commissions.
Please drop me an email or message if you wish to discuss a commission.
Alternatively my studio is available to visit by appointment only to discuss ideas in person. Examples of previous commissions below.
HAMPSHIRE OPEN STUDIOS
THE ALRESFORD SHOW
Latest work and customer shares.
The electricity used to fire my kiln comes from renewable sources.
The packaging I use is the remainder of bubble wrap which I bought over 5 years ago, I will continue to use it until it's finished. Please could I ask, that where possible, you reuse it, or pass it on to someone who can.
All packaging from my suppliers will be reused, from cardboard boxes, to filler and air pillows. Any new packaging in the future will be sustainably sourced and plastic free.
