I believe that buying something that is built to last and will be enjoyed by many generations is important. I also believe that it is important to be happy and to make happy in what ever you do.
All my original ceramic pieces are designed, made by hand, and fired in my shed workshop in Essex. Some pieces, like the funny plant pots and woodland decorations exude laughter and joy. Others, like the unique incense holders offer a contemplative oasis in the hectic desert of every day life. They are all beautiful pieces of heirloom pottery and ceramic art.
Some functional but mostly not.
Because beautiful things don't need a reason.
