 Popolo Ceramico



About Us

Popolo Ceramico is a ceramics business that specialise in personalised ceramics. The business was founded by Christina Taylor-Chisholm in 2010. Christina studied Art in Newcastle upon-Tyne and has always had a passion for ceramics. As a working mother, after a career in Project Management Christina decided to leave her job and set up her own ceramics business. Combining her love of art, ceramic’s, interior design, bright colours and her background in business, Popolo Ceramico was created.

We are a mobile business, based within the Biscuit Factory. We attend numerous events throughout the North East of England capturing baby & children's hand prints in paint, clay and plaster. We also offer a range of ceramic parties within our local area. In addition to this, we also offer beautiful, bespoke, hand painted ceramics that can be ordered at one of our parties/events, through one of our retail partners or purchased online.

The Best Quality Ceramics

We are passionate about producing the best quality ceramics and working within an established pottery alongside some of the North East's best potters for many years, we ensure we only use the best quality ceramics, paints, glazes and ensure we fire our products at the correct temperature to ensure outstanding quality products are produced.

The Process

When you place an order with us, your selected product will be hand painted using non-toxic eco-friendly paints, then glazed and fired over a 48 hour period to ensure it remains usable for years to come. In our studio, we have two industrial kilns working round the clock to bring you the best quality hand painted ceramics straight from the North East’s historic ceramic heartland. All of our products are hand painted, glazed and fired, therefore no two pieces will be identical and there may be slight imperfections. In our opinion though, this is what makes hand made items so personal and unique.

Delivery Times

All of our products are made to order, therefore we aim to complete your order and send it out within 14 days. During busy times of the year, delivery times may increase to 28 days.
