Chris Burns

Harcourt China

Established in 1987 by the ex-royal Worcester artist Christopher Burns, Harcourt China specialises in producing decorativeĀ  hand-painted fine bone china pieces.

Chris trained at the school of art at Royal Worcester Porcelain in the late 1960s and has skills that are now becoming all but lost. He is one of the few people now hand making bone china plaques as well as guilding and entirely handpainting them. They are painted in rich ceramic colours, and these colours then deepen with each firing.

Chris is inspired by natural subjects which are wide and varied, including landscapes, seascapes, birds, animals and buildings.

Commissions have included a Stratford upon Avon scene painted for the late Princess Diana and a piece for Lambeth Palace.

Most recently Christopher has been sending his work to Galleries in Shanghai, China.
Painting will always be a passion along with his appreciation of the fact that we live in such a beautiful part of the country.

His ambition is to keep alive the traditions and skills of Royal Worcester, whilst maintaining his own unique identity through continuous development of his products.

See his website for more details.
