A mixture of Printed & Hand painted gifts
"A little piece of country heaven" - LandLove magazine, April 2013
Jennifer & Adrian Bell work from their home studio in County Durham. Jennifer's work is known
for the detailed naturalistic designs inspired by the countryside around her home in County Durham
& from travelling around the country attending Flower & craft shows.
A range of printed gifts from Jennifer's original Watercolour paintings.
This range includes ceramic, metal & fibreglass gifts & was introduced to allow more detailed
paintings to be be reproduced.
Using a raised paste an outline design is drawn using a piping bag in the same style as the ceramics.
Therefore the printed range compliment the hand painted ceramics. The outline designs are then painted with Watercolours & Pastels. Once finished the painting is scanned into a computer & used to print onto Mugs, Coasters, Hearts & Tiles.
Our range of Footpath Sign mugs can be personalised with the name of your town or you can have a garden sign with your name on which is a perfect present for any garden lover.
Adrian Bell hand casts items from Earthenware slip & they are fired in a kiln to 1140 Degrees C.
Jennifer applies her designs using slip-trailing. No two pieces are exactly alike as each designis piped straight onto the ceramic there are no patterns or tracelines applied first.
Items are then hand painted with underglaze oxides, dip glazed & fired again.
Once complete our ceramics are useable & decorative so they make beautiful gifts. As they have some raised design they are best cared for by hand washing.
Please allow up to 4 / 5 weeks when ordering the hand painted range.
