About Us

The Long and Short of it is ...

... we have two big loves - dogs and pottery.

We are Emma and Emerson and we have a little pottery studio set up at our home in Cornwall where we create our pieces on a traditional potter's wheel and also by using hand-building techniques. We both love nature and working with sustainable materials to create one of a kind pieces. Our approach is very much that of the Japanese term 'Wabi-sabi', which embraces the beauty of imperfection.

Our Miniature Dachshunds, Spencer and Nellie, are a huge part of our lives and so with a little inspiration from them, So Long Ceramics was born.

We are passionate about pottery, we love the process and get unbelievably excited for every single kiln opening. We are honoured and humbled to be able to create functional pieces for humans and their beautiful pets to enjoy.

The Making Process

Each of our pieces start out as a ball of stoneware clay. Each clay ball gets wedged by hand and either thrown on a traditional potter's wheel or hand built to create its form. The bottom of each piece is then turned and proudly stamped with our logo before being left to dry for up to a week. Once bone dry, the pieces are carefully placed into the kiln and fired to high temperatures exceeding 1200 degrees celsius. This part of the process is irreversible as it turns the clay into pottery. Once cooled, we then brush on our glaze combinations by hand before placing them back into the kiln for a second high temperature firing, which is where the magic happens. The glaze takes on a life of its own at melting temperature and fuses to the pottery, making them waterproof and functional.

  • "I received my beautiful bowl yesterday, delivery was very quick, even with the bank holiday weekend. The bowl was very well packaged, and had a lovely thank you note from the makers, which was a very nice touch. I’m so pleased with my bowl, it’s excellent quality, looks great, and my dog was very happy to eat all of her dinner out of it as soon as it arrived! ?? Thank you, Bandit is over the moon with her new personalised bowl ??"
