These are the Alice Jane Studio B&W Cermaic Loop Earrings! Alice Jane Hughes grew an interest in ceramics after she started working at The Craft Pottery in Glasgow where the opportunity to experiment with material has resulted in the creation of ceramic jewellery that draws on Alice’s love of painting. Each unique, handcrafted piece is seen by Alice as a piece of art in its own right!
This is a ceramic Alma by Claire De Lune who is a Scottish ceramic artist and painter living and working in the sunny seaside town of Margate.

The Ceramic Radish Planter Pot by Jeff Josephine. Jeff Josephine uses her background in Illustration to design and create a hand crafted collection of illustrative studio pottery from her home studio in Gloucestershire. The ‘Radish Pot’ is a bold graphic design, inspired by the simple graphics found in children’s books from the early half of the 20th Century. The pot is slab built using earthenware clay. It is then put through a bisque firing before being hand painted using vibrant coloured underglazes. It is then once again fired and each one is finished with a hand stitched leather handle.
Son of Pear has a glorious collection of pinch pots and bottles that are a whole manner of shapes, ripples, nooks and crannies. These are the Monochrome Dot Pots.

This Brush Pattern Porcelain Pot is by Sarah Koetsier a ceramicist working from her studio in Scotland. Koetsier’s ceramics are all hand thrown porcelain and decorated with coloured underglazes.
