    Check back every day for new items in our store! And remember, all our pieces are stoneware, so they are very durable and perfect for every day use. They will not chip or break easily. All pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe.


    CLEARANCE!

    March 8th, 2013

    Every year after the Christmas season, we’ve had a clearance section on our website. This year, it’s on Etsy, and it’s a big one! Over 20 beautiful pieces, ranging in price from only $6 to $15! This is a clearance you will not want to miss!

    Each item is a quality, handmade piece of pottery that is very durable and ideally suited for use every day! But they also make beautiful items for home decor and gifts. The only reason these pieces are on sale so low is because of our new bowls! We have many, many new bowls being made every day and we simply need more room.

    So make sure to check out the clearance section and order your favorites today!

    An Eventful First Half!

    June 30th, 2011

    The first half of the year 2011 has been an eventful one for us here at Jean Elton Studio!

    • In case you aren’t following us on Facebook, you may not have realized that in addition to our online store and gallery, we are also now selling on Etsy!  We made our first sale within days of opening, and are excited to see where this will lead us.  In looking through the various ceramics, pottery, and other houseware items, we have found that our pieces are very unique.  It is rare to find such colorful, vibrant, and useful items made from such durable stoneware!

    Hand-Painted Apple Mugs

    • We are also selling many of our pieces at a ceramics retail store in Sheffield, MA.  It is at the same location where we buy many of our supplies, including our tons of clay!  This is now the second retail location to sell Jean Elton (remember Space?).
    • We have already completed a large, customized order, and are in the middle of several more!  People who know what they want for Christmas gifts have let us know early in order to guarantee they will be done on time.

    It’s exciting to see what the rest of the year will bring!


    In the Paper!

    May 12th, 2011

    We were happy to be a part of the Fairfield Arts and Crafts Fair this past weekend. Even though we did not make our goal for the show, it was still a lovely day to just be outside! The weather was beautiful, the other vendors very pleasant, and our family and friends came to just spend some time with us. And last but not least, a writer for the local paper liked our display, so we ended up in the paper!

    Exhibitor Lois Barker, of Jean Elton Studio, offering platters, cups and dinnerware, was pleased to be at the fair for a second year. “We like to support local art and events,” she said. “All our items are handmade at our Fairfield studio. It’s a great day today and we hope people will turn out to shop, especially for their deserving moms.”
