"The penguins are dressed up for Halloween, but they definitely won't be scaring anyone, far too cute for that!"
"Pumpkin season! The penguins are dressed up as pumpkins, new pins for autumn."

On Etsy since 2015

Starting out on Etsy

I've been creating and selling ceramics since 1999, starting in gift ware and then specialising in Atop of the tier wedding cake toppers. I have always loved painting, drawing and crafts, and I am very excited to be bringing my creations to Etsy.
For a long while now I have mainly focused on cake toppers which I always have and very much still love to create, and it's great to be using that experience to offer a new little range of arts and ceramics.
My inspiration comes from all creatures great and small. I love the lighter side of life and art (as you can possibly tell from the shop). Occasionally I might give some time to a serious study… but to be honest it’s more likely to be a penguin in a tutu!
I hope you enjoy my art, and thank you for looking

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

All items are very carefully packaged for posting.
We don't offer a gift wrapping service at this time.
We are happy to report that no plastic packaging has been purchased for quite sometime now. Paper, card, paper tape and shredded label backing is used to send orders. Some products are wrapped in compostable card bags, but this is being minimised as much as possible. Items are sent in the smallest packaging possible as well.

Wholesale availability

Currently we don't offer wholesale. The difficulty is we try and keep prices as low as possible, which makes it tricky to discount things any further. If you are ordering more than a minimum of 50 of one item, then please contact us.

Sizing details

Many of the items in the shop are miniature.
Please check the sizes in the listings when ordering, if you are unsure just ask for any specific details needed.


In the unlikely event that you receive a damaged item, please contact me straight away and also send a photo.
Please check your address is correct before ordering, I am unable to accept liability for an item not arriving due to an incorrect address.

Custom and personalised orders

Sorry there is no personalisation service available on any items in the shop
