About castandclayco

Sales 74
On Etsy since 2017

Cast and Clay is a creative team of two handcrafting ceramic home accessories with minimal monochrome designs in rural Nottinghamshire.

The two makers are in fact mum and daughter duo Valerie and Raechyl. Working together they create multifunctional one-off ceramic pieces from their home studio.

It all started when Raechyl embarked on an evening course in pottery in December 2016 and was bitten by the clay bug immediately. The following February Raechyl persuaded Valerie (who couldn’t initially understand how soft squishy earth could be so exiting) to join her for a class at the local studio. Valerie was amazed to discover a creative streak that she never knew was there and gained an instantaneous passion for the craft too.

As a natural progression to what we were making individually, we began combining our ideas for form, shape and decoration, and as a result ‘Cast + Clay’ was born. We now handcraft our pieces in ceramic clay in our home studio.

Every item is individually made and uniquely decorated with a monochrome design.
We strive to ensure that no two pieces are the same, meaning every customer receives a completely one of a kind and versatile product. Each piece gets fired in an electric kiln twice at temperatures above 1000 degrees- yowzers!

To minimize our impact on the environment we source our raw materials as close to home as possible, use only plastic free, recyclable/ biodegradable packaging and because our pieces are small (but certainly no less mighty!) it means we can utilize the kiln space more efficiently.

We hope you enjoy browsing our shop, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
