Meet Jenny Watt (in the stripey apron), the amazing lady behind Jenz Studio. Jenz Studio is located in Te Puna, Tauranga where her team of talented individuals (including husband Tom) work hard creating Jen's special range of ceramics. It is a lovely sunny spot near the Waikaraka estuary inlet, bordered by lots of little orchards. It is an ideal place for a studio – it’s really peaceful and completely condusive to the creative process of making the ceramics.
All Jenz Studio pieces are slip-cast using beautiful white NZ earthenware clay, and glazed by hand before kiln firing. The art tiles, and (new 2015) hanging planters/vases are designed to be displayed in both interior/exterior spaces. Design and colour inspiration comes from natural New Zealand - flora & fauna and land/seascapes, along with influences from the greater Pacific region.
In addition to their original Jenz Studio hand crafted art tiles, Tom and Jen now design and source other special ceramic home wares that they can’t make themselves. The new range is made overseas, and comes under their new (2013) brand George & Co.
