      I am already the proud owner of a Florence the Bear and have been wanting to get her a shelf companion for a little while and my newly named Trafalgar the Pigeon will fill that role very nicely. Helen has done a marvellous job of adding humour and love to an often underrated bird and I knew I had to have one. Oh, and whilst it may have been greedy I went back to buy the earthworm in a jumper. He is to join my bookshelf as a bookworm.

      Lovely vase! It is so charming and brings a smile to my face every time I walk past it. I have to give kudos to the seller for her wonderful packing job. It was very secure and it allowed my package to survive its overseas journey in one flawless piece (even during the pandemic craziness).

      The blenny is so perfectly made. Really beautiful artisanship and shipped carefully - lots of bubble wrap, arrived in excellent condition. Thank you!!

      It is perfect! It was shipped fast and securely. I don't think any amount of shaking and rolling over could've broken the frog fish while in transit. Now I have an office buddy who keeps me company all day. Just looking at it makes me smile. Thank you!

      I love my new ceramic dog! It shipped quickly and arrived in just over two weeks in the USA from the UK. It was packed very well, and the dog arrived without any kind of damage. I hope to be able to buy more pieces again in the future!

      Just the most magical creature one could ever imagine! I continue to be thrilled with Helen’s absolutely stellar creations! The highlight of my year was getting this little guy :-)

    The nosey mungo story

    It all began in the 80's. As a child I'd spend my time either making something or outside in search of wildlife. My favourite things on TV were David Attenborough documentaries and everything by Aardman - I was convinced I was going to be the next Nick Park.

    ​The urge to create has always stayed with me but I ended up following a path in science. I studied Geography with Biology at university and then returned to do a masters in Biodiversity Surveying. This eventually led to an amazing job at the Sussex Wildlife Trust where I deal with biodiversity data and the geeky side of nature conservation.

    In 2010 the onset of fibromyalgia forced me to cut down my hours at work. I needed an alternative focus and clay was the answer. After several pottery classes I was hooked and what started as a hobby quickly turned in to a business when people liked my work enough to want to buy it.

    Nine years later, nosey mungo has arrived. As children this is what our mum called us if we were being too inquisitive but that's what I hope will be the driver of new creativity.
