About The China Hutch


Wide range of designs hand painted on fine bone china and porcelain by Michelle Yates. Children's plates, mugs and bowls a specialty. Something for all occasions. Commissions undertaken.

Everything is done by hand so each piece is unique, no 2 are exactly the same.

I have painted for a number of years as well as until recently being a neonatal intensive care nurse. In the 1990's we lived for a number of years in the Netherlands where I had a full time business painting on porcelain.


On glaze paints only are used, firstly I do an outline with a fine pen and nib and fire, then each piece requires a number of firings in a kiln at 820C to achieve the depth of colours.
