I didn’t need to contact Maggie for anything other to let her know the item had arrived. She was proactive in letting me know the item was dispatched. The item is gorgeous, was well packed and I am sure will be greatly received by my niece for her birthday. One of the best Etsy transactions for a while.

The communication and customer service was exceptional and I was informed every step of the way as I am in Germany and it was being sent to the UK. A little note was also added for me which was a nice touch. Speedy service too. I was made to feel that everything was above and beyond. My friend is very happy with it! Thank you Maggie!

Celebrating 50 years at Folly Pottery.
I'm happily celebrating my 50th year in pottery and still think it's the best job in the world. I'm from an old pottery family, three generations of us used to work altogether at Folly Pottery's old buildings in the New Forest, now I carry on the tradition in a newer studio space just over the border in Dorset where I'm pleased to say my 22-month-old grandson has started to learn to throw pots on the potter's wheel already.
To celebrate my 50th year and the 40th anniversary of Mum and I starting Folly Pottery together in 1982, I thought it would be a nice idea to return to our roots a little and make again some of the animals we were known for way back then.
So as we reopen for the autumn and winter months of 2022, expect lots of ducks, piggies, sheep, dogs, whales, hedgehogs and rabbits :-D
Thank you for visiting
(Oh oh oh if you would like to read more about life in a pottery, I write a light-hearted blog on my website)
Artist, Owner, Potter
Maggie is the second generation of potters in Folly Pottery and makes mugs, bowls, jugs, bird baths, duck, sheep and pigs, plus a whole lot more.
Pottery Dog is a very important role within a pottery, EllieDoods keeps the potter sane with her company and gives sound advice if a pot really isn't good enough!
Trade Canvas Prints of Tenby
This small company has been doing my canvas prints for years, they are remarkably great printers, fast, accurate and very efficient. They will take my artwork, print it onto their canvas, then stretch it over the wooden frame and attach a silvery coloured hanging fixing, ready to pop on the wall.

Frequently asked questions
breakages in transit?
Maggie of Folly Pottery personally guarantees that should any item not arrive from her safely, she will replace the item FREE OF CHARGE, Maggie is known at her postal office as the Queen of Overpacking, and as she becomes very fond of her work, she wants to know that they will each have a trouble-free transit to their new homes, so lives up to this reputation and adds extra layers of packing :-D
WHAT TO DO IF A BREAKAGE OCCURS - return it via Etsy in the usual way (which will incur postal charges), and Maggie will refund those postal charges and then get the replacement to you as soon as possible - BEARING IN MIND PLEASE that some items are one-offs and may take several weeks to reproduce at the pottery :-)
is this item dishwasher/microwave proof?
All dinnerware, mugs and jugs are microwavable and dishwasher proof unless it is stated in bold in the description.
For all other items, please check the description for individual care instructions.
there's a blemish!
Handmade pottery is full of little marks which prove it's handmade authenticity so please don't see them as blemishes. Having said that, if you really hate any part of your item, return it for a refund or replacement in the usual way. Maggie will totally understand :-)
