Whimsical world of ceramic creatures and characters...

Rain is hitting the roof of our narrowboat, the stove fire is burning coal in the corner and Watson the Labradoodle, my muse, is curled up by my feet under the table. I have clay smears on my face and jogging bottoms and my short haired fringe is pushed up into a messy tuft giving my usual dishevelled look. There is a ball of clay on my table waiting to be imagined...

Frequently asked questions
How do I personalise an item?

Please enter the details you require in the 'note to seller' on the checkout page, taking care to check spelling, grammar, capital letters and punctuation and that the details are correct. I will follow exactly what is written on your order form. If you notice you've made a mistake on your order please contact me within 24 hours with changes.

How long do custom orders take?

Production times vary throughout the year and depends on the current amount of orders being commissioned. Please take note of the time in my shop announcement or the processing time on the product page.

Can I include my pet?

Yes! I love to include people's pets and animals on my plaques. I am happy to work from photos if you'd like to message across any for reference and colour markings. Please remember they will be developed into a caricature of your pet and are not strict portraits, quirky and whimsical versions will be created!

Is it suitable for outdoors?

The clay I use is ceramic stoneware, which is vitreous: that is glass-like, it is completely water tight and frost proof so suitable for outdoor usage. My outdoor signs, plaques and made for outdoor products are hand painted with all weather permanent lightfast paints, glazes and, or underglazes. Outdoor usage will always be stated in the product description.

My sculptures are intended for indoor use only and are painted with acrylics and finished with a matt lustre for protection, so please don't place them outside unless it states so in the description. Plus, my little creatures can get rather cold!

I'm an international buyer. Is VAT/GST/etc. included in my purchase?

I am a small business based out of the UK that is not registered to collect any VAT/GST/other taxes for foreign countries. Therefore the price you pay is purely for my item(s) + shipping. If you live outside of the UK you may be subject to these charges when your order arrives, which please note is your responsibility. Check your Country's Guidelines for more information.

Please note if you' mark as gift' on International orders by law I have to provide an invoice for customs clearance in with the packaging so cannot guarantee your recipient will not see this information.

Shipping

Domestic free delivery items are sent 2nd class with Royal Mail.

All other products unless stated are sent tracked service both domestically and Internationally for peace of mind. Please bear in mind this sometimes requires a signature upon delivery and you may have to contact your local post office for redelivery of your purchase if you were not home to receive it.

To keep shipping costs to a minimum on international orders if you order more than one item from Blue Fish Studios I will calculate the weight of the items and sometimes send orders out in more than one parcel. I will always provide details of two tracking numbers if this is the case. This normally only applies to sculptures and larger plaques or heavier items.

What if an Item Arrives Damaged

If an item arrives damaged I will need photographic proof of the damage and any packaging damage for my records.
Once these have been provided I will contact you with options to discuss how you'd like to proceed in the form of a refund or replacement, depending on the piece purchased to reach a satisfactory outcome.
I cannot accept any damage claims without photographic proof of the damaged item.
