My name is Penny and I am a well known and highly collected ceramic artist from Cornwall.

I am pleased to offer caricature miniature ceramic house based on your home or a house of your choice. The hand-crafted miniature ceramic house you receive will be made from the finest clays with your choice of wall colour (please see colour chart picture). The roof glazed in a delightful beige and speckled blue agate gloss offering a deep and fascinating shimmer.

== Sizes ==
As the size increases so does the detail, small being a more basic "Caricature" representation of the house, larger having more detail.
Size refers to the "longest edge" typically width.

-- "Small" - 2.5cm to 3.5cm. Low detail. Similar style to my miniature house range and will fit perfectly in that pottery “neighbourhood”.
-- "Medium" - 3.5cm to 5cm. Higher detail.
-- "Large" - 5cm to 8cm. Highest detail.

== A Note on Creation Time ==
Custom orders need to be handmade, dried, fired, cooled, glazed, high fired, cooled & wrapped before being sent. Therefore an order will typically take 2-3 weeks to complete, this is reflected in the processing time of this listing. I would rather delight a customer with a quicker delivery than disappoint with a delay, so often I can beat these times, depending on kiln firing schedules.

Please note, because the items are handbuilt and not cast (mass produced), occasionally items will develop small blemishes - pinholes or very fine hairline cracks in the structure. These blemishes do not detract from the overall look of the piece. Larger items are more prone to this.

== What I need ==
Please message me with photos of the front of the property, an address can also be helpful as Google Maps / Streetview & Earth can me provide different vantage points. For sides I cannot see I will make an educated guess on window and door placement.

== Additional Info ==
Why not send a house as a gift to a friend or loved one. They make excellent house moving/warming gifts, or maybe just a way of letting them know you are thinking of them.

They can be placed on your windowsill, mantlepiece or gathered perhaps in a goldfish bowl or around the base of your favourite house plant.

Please contact me if you have a specific idea or suggestion and I will work hard to accommodate you.

—- About Penny Pottery —-

In this world dominated by mass produced items, it is refreshing and exciting to own a piece of hand crafted art, knowing that it is uniquely yours. Penny is driven by a desire to spread her work far and wide, hence items are affordably priced.

Penny is a ceramic artist, having studied at the world renowned Falmouth College of Arts in Cornwall, UK. The Cornish coast is a strong source of inspiration for Penny, many of her pieces recreate the sea; the fishing boats, harbours and cottages precariously perched on the cliff tops where she grew up.

Now living in Surrey, UK. Penny founded PennyPottery and sells via local galleries in Surrey and Cornwall and now for the first time on Etsy. All artwork is hand-built and finished in its entirety by Penny alone. All designs are completely unique, one of a kind and produced in low volume. Items are hand stamped with her logo. Nothing is created from molds or templates. The artworks are crafted with high quality clay and glazes and fired in the artists own kiln in a workshop at the bottom of her garden. Energy is sourced from a renewable provider.
