JOC Ceramics is a unique gallery located in the heart of historic Hampton, on the north bank of the river in West London. This progressive space combines the Jackson O’Connor Architecture studio with a ceramics gallery, showcasing a wide range of ceramic art and pottery.
The gallery reflects our passion for both architecture and ceramics with artwork on display by up and coming stars of the ceramics community as well as established makers. We carefully select pieces by artists whose work reflects the architectural practice’s design ethos and will sit well in the buildings we create.
We have a rotating calendar of exhibitions at the JOC Studio primarily featuring ceramics with occasional artists from other disciplines such as painting and printmaking. The space is ever evolving and new collaborations sit alongside much loved favourites.
Amongst the artists and makers featured will be work from JOA Director, Jane O’Connor. Her exclusive collection of one-of-a-kind, hand crafted ceramics demonstrate her passion for design, colour and form, drawing inspiration from childhood memories of Hornsea Pottery coffee sets, 60s and 70s fashion as well as modernist architecture and art.
Colour was the prime topic of Jane’s post graduate thesis, and she applies this research and knowledge both to her architectural work and her ceramics – using colour with subtlety and consideration to punctuate her creations.
Jane’s current collection features modernist hand built bird forms alongside thrown stoneware pieces, combining clean, simple sculptural lines with pops of colour.

We’re delighted to announce a forthcoming international exhibition by Texan Ceramicist Jessica Phillips. Starting on 2 April with a private reception.
Jessica’s ceramic work focuses on cultivating a quiet purity of form with a nod to the strong decisive lines of the industrial machinery she grew up with in her father’s workshop. Her ceramics bring together the soft elegance of wheel-thrown forms with contrasting stark graphic surfaces. Jessica’s work often explores familial relationships, memory loss and fabricated nostalgia. Through her work, Jessica seeks to illuminate the subtlety of human interactions, to highlight the tension between our physical separateness and our emotional connectedness.
Jessica earned a BA in Studio Art with a concentration in ceramics at The University of Texas Austin. While working professionally as a graphic designer, Jessica has continued to work with ceramics for over 20 years. Currently Jessica works out of her home studio in Houston, TX.
Work displayed on the website gallery offers just a glimpse of what is on offer in our Hampton gallery. Ranging from serving dishes and tableware for fabulous entertaining to sculptural artwork, each piece is individual and hand-made.
As these pieces are all about touch, colour, detail and scale. They are best appreciated in person, so if you see something you like please contact us to arrange a visit to the gallery.
