Words by Justine Jenner:

Unique and handcrafted by myself, I make beautiful pots for everyday use- pots that aesthetically enhance life's daily routine and special occasions.

My love of providing food for family and friends, sharing everyday and memorable moments around the kitchen table, is the starting point for all that I make - from the morning cup of coffee to the most meaningful celebrations. My contemporary tableware is designed to show off food and drink as well as being fully functional, comfortable and tactile to use.

I love pops of colour, both in what I wear and dotted around the house as well as the contrast of muted greys, all of which is reflected in the pots I design and make.

I fell in love with pottery at the age of 14 when I picked up a Dartington Pottery mug at a local gallery. It was thoroughly modern in both form and decoration, comfortable to hold , an everyday object infused with beauty. This was the 1980s and my love-affair with ceramics continues to this day - particularly functional ware.

From an apprenticeship at Dartington Pottery to producing my own work in a basement studio in Rome, three children and several pets later, I began making pots again in 2013 from my home-based workshop located in the heart of the Hampshire countryside. A tranquil and inspiring setting for me to work from.

As well as selling my pottery at fairs, through a number of makers' shops, galleries and my website, I also run pottery workshops at my studio which I greatly enjoy.
