Announcement   iamsjm are purveyors of fine porcelain decoration, jewellery, giant bone china cups, T-shirts, and a few other things.

We design everything we sell (apart from our craft supplies section) The t-shirts are printed for us by a local company, the cups are made and decorated for us in stoke. As for the decorations and jewellery, we begin with a lump of clay, and 2-3 weeks later the finished piece comes out of their final firing, we then add any non ceramic elements required (the string and bows for some of the decorations and the clasps for the brooches) and then box them ready to be sent out to you. Due to the handmade nature of our products pieces will vary slightly from the picture. Some like the tortoiseshell animals all have unique markings, no two coats are exactly alike. If you would like to choose the coat of your cat brooch, just ask and we can send you up to 4 options. Our decorations are very fine and don't weigh the branches of your Christmas tree down. Although we hear from many of our customers that they keep our decorations up all year round, displaying them on mirrors, in windows and above fireplaces.

You can also find our work in many boutique shops, and galleries around the UK. I am sorry but we don't offer a bespoke service.

I love it! It’s so comfortable and it even has the end of the poem on the back!

About

We work mostly in porcelain but also design t-shirts.

I am a graduate of the very short lived Falmouth College Of Arts studio ceramics degree. That 's in Cornwall, at the very western tip of the United Kingdom.

My business started as a gift for a friend. Her father was ill, and she began to dread people asking how she was. She didn't want to be rude. But sometimes she just didn't want to talk about it. So I made her some beakers, each one had a phrase on it that started with i am. "I am having a really bad day only talk to me if you have good news", "i am quite unusually brilliant". So that people would know how she was without asking. I began stamping my words (i wrote all the phrase that appeared on the beakers) into thrown porcelain, and then I discovered decals, and my love affair with type began.

And I began to make smaller things, to see if i could get the porcelain to be translucent. Strips of porcelain with words stamped in. Then we changed shapes and introduced different glazes, and lustres. And suddenly we had begun to be christmas tree decoration makers and we had stopped making beakers. And then the text that had been on the beakers and decoration was put onto t-shirts. And we became a ceramics and t-shirt company, we still put text on ceramic, and the designs that start on our ceramics still end up on t-shirts.

Never ones to sit on our laurels we developed a range of brooches these are a relatively new and off shoot of the decoration, because people were always saying that wanted to wear the decorations.

This year we have introduced hoodies and sweatshirts.

Of course I am still a potter and so ever so often I do a bit of throwing.
Our ink and ocean porcelain pots are almost ready to go online.
