Handcrafted products created by Cornish artisans
We’re a vibrant group of designer-makers from Cornwall, based on an organic farm on Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula, from where we source exquisitely handcrafted items from a few highly skilled makers in Cornwall.
We’re looking to share finely crafted work that is not available in London, and rarely outside of Cornwall, bringing established Cornish makers to a wider audience and making these hidden treasures accessible to the rest of the world!
Our current range includes the unique mouthblown glassware of Tim and Carole Casey, hand thrown pottery by Lizard potter Paula Gray, cushions hand printed and sewn by Hazel Lawrence, and stunning silver jewellery by Fay Page.
Handthrown pottery by Paula Gray
Paula lives and works in the village of Lizard, the southern most village in England, on Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula. Paula hand throws all of her work in the pottery, and each piece is hand painted using her ‘sea washed’ glazes, then fired twice to create distinctly Cornish tableware using blues, turquoises and greens in stripes against matte white backgrounds.
We’re still carefully adding products to Paula’s section of our website – worth checking her section if you haven’t recently!
Cornwall’s hidden treasures, discovered
Certain themes are common between different makers, such as colour that is representative of the sea, sky and cliffs of wild Cornwall, untempered by conformity to commercial styling, so sea washed glasses in sea green and shades of blue, soft to intense with recognisably Cornish features in bold and soft stripes. When function and form connect in the hands of a craftsman, there is a ‘shine’ to the finished piece of work that is recognisable and gives years of pleasure in the usage.
