Each piece is individually made so expect slight variations in size and colour to items pictured on the website. All items listed in stock it will be dispatched within 3- 5 working days.

All pots are made of stoneware clay and high fired for strength and durability. They are all microwave and dish washer safe.

They are, however, a handmade item so handwashing would be the favoured option.


These will be as shown on the website. These are not as durable as the tableware range and should not be treated in the same way.

A light dusting or cleaning with a dry fine brush or lint free cloth will ensure that they continue to look their best.


All original paintings are on either canvas (with highest quality, strong pine stretchers) or canvas board.  All are original artworks (not reproductions) in either acrylic, oil paint or a combination of both media.
