About

HI

Hi, I'm MECKI. I make functional and decorative ceramics. I am drawn to pots that are aesthetically pleasing. They also need to be lovely to touch, to hold and give pleasure in everyday use.
I produce both small series of work as well as one-off pieces. Much is made on the wheel. Some is hand-built or altered after throwing. My ceramics are designed to retain their good looks indefinitely.
Living and working by the sea influences the colour palette of my in-house glazes. I fire in both electric and Raku kilns.

Hi, I’m ZANNA. I am an illustrator with a love of the natural world. Working in my garden studio right next to Mecki’s pottery, I produce artwork designed to complement Mecki’s ceramics. I also create the images fired onto Mecki’s pots.
I love manipulating existing print techniques and favour the rough and raw qualities achieved with monoprint and image transfer - often combining the two digitally. Many of my illustrations are produced exclusively for ZAN+ME.

Before I forget … I'm also Mecki’s daughter. And yes, we get on splendidly. ☺

    We believe that working with clay is a partnership between material+ makers + that they have to work in harmony to create with clay. All before glazes and imagery add soul to a piece. But it's the intense heat in the kiln that has the final say.

Returns and exchange details
We take great care to provide true photos and accurate descriptions so that you are well informed before buying.

Due to the handmade process and shrinkage during firing, complete uniformity of size is near impossible to achieve. Up to approx. 10% of size variations may occur.

Should you wish to return your item, please send it back to us in its original packaging to guard against breakage. We will refund your cost (minus the return postage) as soon as the undamaged piece has been received.

We recommend you request Delivery Confirmation from your chosen carrier so that you're protected in case the parcel gets lost in transit.
Payment
All the above are accepted.
