From the rural Te Puna pottery studio JS Ceramics handcraft the collections.

      Slipcast using pure white New Zealand earthenware (slip) clay, each piece is then trimmed, smoothed and glazed by hand before firing in our electric kilns. They slip-cast small runs of tableware, plant pots, vases and decorative art-tiles.

      Design inspiration comes from New Zealand landscapes, flora and fauna, favouring organic shapes. The Contain tableware collection is more abstract, decorated with glaze patterns developed in a series of glaze, brush and pencil application experiments.
