About Us

From our rural Te Puna pottery studio we handcraft our JS Ceramics collection, then travel abroad to curate and design unique pieces for our George & Co brand.

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. We 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.

The George collection is designed and curated by us, but made overseas. This enables us to offer larger, more complex ceramic pieces than we can make here in the studio.

The collection consists of tableware, serving platters and bowls, planters, vases, decor items and porcelain lamps. Our design focus for George & Co is clean lines, lots of white porcelain, mid-century design and some Japanese design elements.
