About

Zoo Ceramics - Getting Away with Working in Clay

Zoo Ceramics is a partnership of two British sculptural ceramic artists Maggie Betley and Tracy Wright. Maggie creates a stunning collection of wildlife transformed into decorative and functional vessels and large animal designs that feature daisy and insect motifs. Tracy is fascinated by birds, cats and rodents and often incorporates a humourous or hidden element to a piece of work. As Zoo Ceramics they design a complimentary body of giftware to exhibit alongside their larger work.

HELLO AND WELCOME TO OUR ZOO CERAMICS ETSY SHOP

ABOUT US
We are Maggie Betley and Tracy Wright, a partnership of two ceramic artists who create a large range of animal sculpture and giftware. We have a studio gallery in the village of Waddington Lincolnshire, in the East of England.

We started our business in 1989, straight after graduating from university and decided that we would rather side step the nine to five and spend our days communing with mud and dangerous chemicals and firing the results to alarmingly high temperatures.

ABOUT OUR WORK
All the designs are fired in electric kilns to 1260°C and are waterproof and frost proof to between minus 20 to 40 degrees.
All moulds, slips and glazes are made and designed and by ourselves.

SMALL GIFTWARE - slip cast or hand modelled – forms an unlimited range.
MINI SCULPTURES – hand modelled or press moulded – 100 to 1000 limited editions.
LARGE SCULPTURES – hand made using, coil, slab and modeling techniques – 100 limited edition.

All work will be sent out with a postcard or bookmark and all edition work will also include a certificate signed by the artist.

Buyer is responsible for any customs duties that may be due. Some of our sculptural work is large, heavy and fragile and may weight up to 15kg and be the size of a small TV.

All items are sent out in double or triple layer packaging and in an effort to be environmentally friendly we sometimes use recycled material, but it will always be clean and tidy.
