Announcement   Why do I call this investment art? Because pieces created several years ago are already showing a return on investment.. recently a piece at a live auction sold for 8 times its purchase price.
Buy it now, enjoy it for a few years and sell it when you retire to buy the little extra things you need (overseas holiday, new TV etc) or buy it as an investment for your children, ceramics make a wonderful gift and can be handed down through generations, they can remind you of a special day or a special person and they're just nice to own and enjoy.

I'll be honest. This is the most favorite thing i own. I'm not kidding. We had a blue parakeet growing up. I feel he has been recreated by Anita Reay. She captured the essence of the parakeet and added a beautiful garden for him to watch over. I put my cherished items in this magnificent dish that sits on my vanity. I have never loved an item so much. The big bird. The colors used bring vibrancy to any room. No matter how tiny this item is - it makes SUCH a difference having it in your household. I feel blessed having this piece of art in my life. I know that seems silly, but it is how i feel. Definitely stop in here. You won't be sorry you did. I am beyond impressed with this artist and her attention to detail and how her animals come alive in her art.

Anita Reay is probably the most amazing artist i ever have laid eyes on. I can NOT begin to tell you how incredibly detailed her products are. The animals come to life that she creates. The colors are magnificent. The way she creates inlays and then paints them add so much depth and volume to the creation. I didn't let the Australian distance stop me and now i'm so glad i didn't. Honestly? I smile every time i look at this adorable winking owl piece. I feel blessed having this small item in my household. My heart is warm when i look at it.

About

Self taught artist who loves playing with clay

Everything I've learned is from books and the internet. I have always been interested in arts and crafts and growing up my room was always declared a disaster area, filled with art and craft projects, both finished and half finished, I particularly love drawing, painting and sculpting and used to sculpt in air dry clay as a child. I discovered porcelain clay in 2005 and have been creating porcelain creatures since then. I'm not sure how long I will continue to create my ceramic pieces (this is the longest I've spent with one medium) but it's been quite an enjoyable pastime. I love to create art that makes people smile, and although I do not do commissions I'm always happy to hear ideas for new pieces.

    I create one of a kind porcelain creatures, my creatures are whimsical rather than anatomical and I'm often told they are very tactile. Nothing pleases me more than to see people look at my art and smile :)

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I am sorry I am unable to create custom orders at the moment but am always happy to hear ideas and suggestions

Multiple purchases shipping

I am happy to combine shipping and will refund any overpayment once I have packaged and weighed the parcel

Are items food safe?

All of my work is glazed with food safe glazes unless otherwise stated

Do you use moulds in your work?

I do not use any moulds for any of my bird or animal sculptures, I do use my own handmade one piece moulds for some of my bowls and mugs which are then decorated with the little hand sculpted figurines and I have just started to create sprig moulds from my own hand formed bird or animal tiles. Each and every piece I create is unique.
