Dottir Studio



Dóttir Studio is the work of visual artist, Jess King.

She creates small runs of ceramic pieces from her home studio, based in Hertfordshire. Building each piece by hand using coil and slab building techniques, she then paints each item one by one, meaning every piece is totally unique.


Originally training as an Illustrator, Jess completed an MA in Illustration at the University of Brighton. This lead her on to a successful career in graphics and print, specialising in surface pattern design. But after the birth of her daughter, Jess sought a return to the creative freedom of her personal practice, thus Dóttir Studio was born.

Taking inspiration from nature, emotion, folklore and myth, she designs whimsical ceramic forms for the home that are embodied with a narrative and personality.
