Hand built stoneware ceramic trinket bowl with gold lustre detailing on rim. 


Our ceramics are handmade in the Designs in Mind Studio by our talented makers. This particular piece has been made by molding the clay around a from, and using a process of pinching and smoothing the clay to create the sahpe. This technique creates an individuality to all our ceramics which makes them all the more special.

  • At Designs in Mind we are we are finding ways to live life and challenge mental health stigma. We create high quality ambitious and experimental art & design work and support each other to make independent ambition a reality.


    We are a working studio, where adults living with mental health challenges join the studio as a member of the team, making and designing commissioned artwork and products for retail. We teach the skills needed to participate- textiles, glass, ceramics, recycled materials, wood, wire and most importantly everyone learns to work within a group. Each project enables different people to take the lead. Not everyone always has the confidence to make decisions and work independently. We break tasks down – so on a bad day when making decisions seems impossible makers can help with backup tasks. A strong network of friends and a peer group is established. Members are creatively challenged and work with purpose, building their self-worth and discovering new aspirations for the future.
