About me

It all started off with a pinch pot pig............

Welcome to my ceramics shop. I have always loved pottery from making my first pinch pot pig at school to now making, talking and thinking about pottery all of the time. I make a very boring dinner guest! I live in Totley on the border of Sheffield and the Peak District with my husband Jay & kids Ruby (17) & Millie (15). We also have Kenny our black cat (who is the inspiration for my cat bud vase), and Boris & Brenda our 2 naughty dogs.

Although I have spent the majority of my career in sales, I have always made ceramics at night school, then bringing home bags of clay and taking over the kitchen table! Now I'm very fortunate to have a home studio in our cellar, which has amazing views over Blackamoor and Derbyshire.

Passionate about pots

Handbuilt ceramics made with love.

I love nothing more that creating new ceramics, wether it is a functional item or just a lovely piece to look at. The beauty of making ceramics is that one day it will be a thought, and the next it will be made into something tangable.

I hand build so do not use a wheel, so all my ceramics have a rustic, organic feel. There is very rarely a perfect circle, or completely straight edge so if you are looking for that, then I might not be for you! But if you are looking for a totally unique one-off piece of ceramic art, then I hope you find something you like.

If you have an idea that you would like transforming into a ceramic piece, please feel free to discuss your idea with me.

I have many items that have started off as an idea from a customer, and if I go on to make them available in my shop, I usually name the item after the customer. So if you see a 'Sally' or a 'Manda' then this is why.

All items are carefully wrapped in tissue paper held together with a company sticker. The main priority is to get the ceramics to the recipient in one piece so this involves careful padding. All bubble wrap is collected from our community here in Totley. If you are unhappy with your item in anyway, please let me know and I will do my best to rectify the problem.
