Baby, Family or Pet Prints (Clay)
A simple handprint hanger, new baby hand and foot print plaque or a family piece (maximum 30cm diameter), I will help turn your family imprints into a beautiful memento.
Each print is imprinted into soft white clay, dried and kiln fired, after which they are painted using underglaze paints (colours of your choice), glazed and re-fired to finalise your keepsake. You can have your piece made with holes to create a simple hanger or, working with a local framing company, I can arrange a personalised quote to mount your piece(s) in a beautiful box frame. I can also print names, ages or quotes into your piece - just let me know when ordering.
Price estimates are shown below:
£15 for a single print hanger
£25 for a two print plaque (with or without hanging holes)
Please contact me to discuss your requirements and individual quote.
Once I have all the details I will create a custom order, take payment (via a card or PayPal) and arrange an appointment to take your imprints. Once they have been taken please allow 4-6 weeks for your item to be completed (to ensure correct drying time and allow for framing etc). Once completed it will be available for collection or delivery (free within Verwood - standard rates elsewhere)
Child or Pet Prints (Paint)
Pottery painting is a great way to quickly take your babies prints and keep a chronicle as they grow. You can do this by either ordering one of my paint at kits to do yourself at home or you can come along to one of my community sessions and I will happily help you to capture your little ones print. I find plates, mugs, coasters and hangers are great for this, but just about any of my homeware shapes can be printed on.
If you are a little unsure, or don't have time to add lettering to your piece I can do this for you - I charge an additional £1.50 per word. I can also turn your prints into print art for an additional £3 per print. Please contact me before you purchase a home paint kit so I can make a custom listing for you to include any extras you would like.
If you run, or part of, a baby or toddler group, I would love to visit your group and take prints for everyone - just contact me to make a booking (minimum purchase required for venue visits).
From my studio in East Dorset I hand paint your very own personalised Christmas Eve plate, ready for Father Christmases special visit!
Like all my tableware, these plates are painted using specialist non-toxic, lead free underglaze paints, fully glazed and fired - so you will be able to use your piece like a normal item - although using them in the microwave or dishwasher is not advised and can cause crazing of the glaze!
Each plate is a full sized dinner plate, measuring 27cm across and are priced at £24 each, plus postage (or free collection).
To place your order please contact me direct with your preferred arrangement i.e. does your little one prefer Santa or Father Christmas? Is there any special Christmas icon you would especially like i.e. Christmas pud, holly, snowman etc? Would you like first names (space for a maximum of two) or a family name?
Once I have all the details I will create a custom order and take payment (via a card or PayPal) and start your piece. Please allow 2-4 weeks for your item to be completed. Once finished I will carefully wrap and package your plate and send via Royal Mail.
