About

Personalising clay with your photos, stories & memories.

Periwinkle and Clay began life as Crafty Pretty in 2012. I married my lovely husband in April that year and over the summer, missing wedding planning, decided I needed a new little project... Crafty Pretty was originally going to be a blog about my adventures learning to knit & crochet - seriously, it's true! The funny thing is, I still can't knit or crochet - and Crafty Pretty became far more than a crafts blog.

The inspiration for my first photo tile piece was my sister using Instagram for lots of lovely pictures from her daughter's first year. I'd been working with clay for a while, and had the idea of transferring her Instagram pictures onto tiles, then mounting them on a canvas as a special Christmas gift.

I was absolutely thrilled at how much my sister & brother-in-law loved the piece, and posted a few pictures to my Facebook page. Things grew from there, and before I knew it I was making lots of ceramic tile frames, gifts and bespoke decorations and chatting to a whole host of lovely customers and other businesses through my Facebook page.

I run Periwinkle and Clay from home; rolling clay and creating in the kitchen, kiln-firing in the garage in Betty (my kiln!) and completing pieces in my studio upstairs. I'm often helped out by my 1 year old daughter, who generally likes tidying out my clay cupboard and my hubby, who tends to help with supplying cups of tea and providing a critical eye! Periwinkle and Clay is located in Thatcham, Berkshire, very close to the town of Newbury. We've lived here since 2009 and have grown rather fond of the market town and surrounding countryside.

I now work full time on Periwinkle and Clay to create lots of lovely pieces for you all. I currently have a range of products available, from decorations to tiled frames. If nothing is quite what you're looking for, I can also work with you to develop a bespoke design - drop me a message to discuss.
