Following Joanna's fascination with plants and pattern and her interest in antique china she completed her MA in 3-D Design at North Staffordshire Polytechnic. Working in Stoke-on-Trent at the heart of the Potteries increased her respect for the ceramic industry and confirmed her love of decorative design.
Having moved to Bristol she set up a small studio at her home where she designs, decorates, and fires her work.
The collection of Joanna Rose tableware and jewellery available from Makers is decorated with a variety of vintage and contemporary ceramic transfers. The juxtaposition of contrasting floral elements gives each piece its unique character.
Joanna's china with its hint of nostalgia can be personalised with names and dates. Each piece is intended to provide as much pleasure to the new owner as it gave the designer to create.
