Announcement   Love & Lovelier - Wordy Contemporary Welsh Ceramics - Postcards, Love-spoons, Brooches, Dishes. Ceramics handmade in Wales.

I am English, but I live in Wales so I like to inject a bit of Welsh flavour to my pieces. A lot of the Love-spoons (which are traditionally Welsh) have words in Welsh written on them. I have a love of words and colour and I like to combine the two in my work. I love doing custom pieces so please contact me and we can work on something perfect just for you!

All my pieces are carefully gift-wrapped in tissue paper and packed in lots of bubble wrap. I tend to use recycled jiffy bags and boxes for the exterior packaging to keep costs down and be friendly to the planet. I post items using Royal Mail - first class for the UK and Airmail for abroad. Generally in stock items will arrive within 2 working days to a UK address, but can take 1-2 weeks to reach the USA.

About

Every cloud has a silver lining

After my eldest daughter was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, it felt like my life had fallen apart. I was pregnant with my second child and when she was born it was determined that she also has CF. It took me a lot of time to come to terms with my new circumstances and what CF meant to my life.

When I started to try and rebuild my life I went to a local evening class on Ceramics. I quickly discovered a joy, and have been making ever since. I started that class in 2010, and have had Love & Lovelier since late 2011.

The first shop I went to try and see if they wanted to sell some of my love-spoons, said YES! I was intending to sell them six spoons, but they ordered over 100. At that point in time I didn't even have a kiln, so I had to get myself organised fast!

Since then I stock over 20 gift shops and tourist attractions across Wales and across into England. I also attend some Maker's Fairs around Christmas to meet customers face to face, which is something I miss out on selling online.
