Our instantly recognisable Mute Swan.
Lovingly sculpted by hand in earthenware clay, each unique individual creature joins a group of new friends where they dry out together. Once dry enough, they are carefully placed in the kiln and fired to 980°C. 24 hours after closing the kiln they will be cool enough so that they can be hand painted in layers of underglaze to bring them to colourful life. The finishing touch is a couple of layers of clear glossy glaze to make them extra strokeable before they go back in the kiln to 1110°C. Wrapped carefully in recycled and recycleable packaging they are then ready to make someone go, “aww,” and think of a name for their little buddy.

My kiln uses electricity from 100% renewable sources, it is an eco-kiln and highly efficient so as to use as little power as possible. I recycle my scrap clay and use rainwater collected in the garden for the workshop. Any printed items are from FSC approved sources and I reuse packaging and encourage people to do the same.
