Hand built stoneware pinch pot with spoon on repurposed oak stand. 

Perfect for seasoning or a dipping sauce. 


Our pinch pot ceramics are handmade in the Designs in Mind Studio by our talented makers using a process of pinching and smoothing the clay to create the forms. This technique creates an individuality to all our ceramics which makes them all the more special. The wooden base has been made from a reclaimed whiskey barrel stave.

Seasoning Pinch Pot with Spoon on Oak Stand

  • 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.
