Beautiful handmade ceramic pottery gifts for dog lovers and collectors of unique studio ceramics. Ceramic vases, ceramic pitchers and jugs, ceramic platters and bowls, miniature ceramic sculptures. Because I decorate each piece by hand and then high-temperature glaze, the designs will never fade (unlike many ceramics which are produced using transfers applied over the glaze and fired to a low temperature).

My ceramics are sent with fully trackable insured worldwide delivery for complete peace of mind. For local collection please message me for a discount code.

From a simple mug to the most decorative vase my ceramics are all one-offs. Each piece has been hand-crafted by me in Kent, England and decorated to create beautiful, useable pottery.

Beautiful handmade ceramic pottery gifts for dog lovers by Simon Olley

All my work is totally one-off, I like to experiment and draw new stuff, so if you see something you like it's best not to delay as I may not be making anything similar for a while.

ABOUT SIMON OLLEY AND OLEY POTTERY
Simon Olley threw his first pot aged 9. He now designs and makes ceramics from his home studio in Kent, England.

Many of the pieces he throws on his pottery wheel using a variety of earthenware, stoneware and porcelain clays. He then decorates the clay, usually at leather hard stage (damp but not soft), with a combination of slips, oxides and glazes. He may scratch into the surface with a range of small tools – a technique called sgraffito and then fires the work in his kiln at temperatures between 1100 and 1300 degrees centigrade.  The result is original, impervious works of craftsmanship – heirlooms that could last for thousands of years.

Three of his black dog themed ceramics pieces were awarded "Best Decorated Work" at the 2017 London Potters Members Exhibition at the Morley Gallery, London. He has exhibited his work at galleries around the UK.

See what Simon and his Labrador, Uly are currently up to by following them on Instagram or Facebook @olleypottery.

All designs are the original work of Simon Olley and are his copyright. All pottery is handmade and decorated by Olley Pottery in Kent, England.

Ceramics are sent with fully trackable insured worldwide delivery for complete peace of mind.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

All of my pieces are handmade and decorated as one-offs, for this reason, wholesale is not something I am really able to do. Why not consider purchasing a one-off ceramic as a display piece on your bar or reception?

Sizing details

I try to be accurate about sizing but as everything is handmade there is some inevitable variation in sizing. If the size of an item is crucial, please check with me before ordering.

Delivery to USA

Most of the work I send to USA is relatively small (mugs, jugs, vases) and I am able to use the UK Royal Mail's excellent Tracked and Signed service.

A day or so after placing your order, I will send you a tracking number, this allows you to follow the journey of your pottery via the Royal Mail website. Once your parcel arrives in the States USPS continues to track your parcel's journey to your door.

Delivery time depends on where you live, to USA is sometimes taking as little 5 working days (Royal Mail quotes between 5 and 7 working days, but is dependant on variables such as customs and time of year).

Any queries at any stage of the delivery process please contact me.

Delivery to Europe, Asia, Australasia and beyond

Most of the work I send abroad is relatively small (mugs, jugs, vases) and I am able to use the UK Royal Mail's insured Tracked and Signed service.

A day or two after placing your order, I will send you a tracking number, this allows you to follow the journey of your pottery via the Royal Mail website. Once your parcel arrives in your country it transfers to your national delivery service and the Royal Mail website continues to track your parcel's journey to your door.

Delivery time depends on where you live, Royal Mail quotes between 5 and 7 working days for many countries but is subject to variables such as customs.

Any queries at any stage of the delivery process don't hesitate to contact me.

Delivery of large items

For large ceramic items abroad (such as a large platter), I shop for the best shipping available at the time, I ensure my work is very securely packed before shipment. Please contact me for shipping of large items so I can get a quote. I refund to the customer any shipping overs.

Relocated or moving?

Please ensure you are using the correct address for your order, especially if you or the recipient has moved or relocated recently. Please do double-check the delivery address you are giving!

Local customers wishing to collect their pottery

Local customers who wish to collect their work directly from me, please contact me for a code to apply to the shopping basket to remove delivery charge (otherwise I will of course refund delivery costs if you collect).

Delivery in person

Very locally (within Sevenoaks area) I'm more than happy to drop off completed work if you or the recipient is for example, housebound or does not have transport.

Gift wrapping and packaging

My gift wrapping is pretty basic at the moment. My emphasis is always on delivering my work safely and securely and this means strong and functional packaging. If you select gift packaging there will not be a priced-up invoice in the package. I do include an attractive postcard with all my work and I am more than happy to sketch on this a handwritten message for the gift recipient, just let me know when you make your order or drop me an email shortly after.
