Cereal bowl - butterfly, bee, ladybird (Beautiful Bugs)
What could say Spring/Summer more than bees, butterflies and (lady)birds… of course these beautiful bugs have had the full Marigold and Lettice treatment so think chunky not twee, unique not mass produced!
Of course, we couldn't help ourselves but liberally scatter our Bugs on these bowls: the perfect size for cereal, crumble, risotto, trifle, soup, ice-cream, pasta or popcorn (think you get the idea) don't you. The butterflies, ladybirds and bees are available in all white or with their splash of colour...
- All white - £28
- Coloured bees and ladybirds - £34
- Coloured butterflies - £36
Please note that they aren't mass-produced and if you are opting for coloured bugs, then remember that these are all painted by hand, each and every one is unique and a one off meaning that they won’t be/can’t be identical. That is what makes them even more special!
Pictured here is the butterfly cereal bowl in all-white.

Getting your perfect piece to you is our priority but as each piece is made to order (we don't hold any pieces in stock), it takes at least three weeks to handmake, fire and glaze each piece of chunky china. That is just a guide though; while we aim for under, three weeks is the norm - it will be worth the wait so if it's four weeks+ please bear with us.
Please note that because each piece is unique the design will be different from the one in the picture – similar but unique.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE AN APPROXIMATE SIZE AS EACH PIECE IS HANDMADE

Marigold and Lettice pottery
Marigold and Lettice pottery is made to be used, loved and enjoyed; it’s made using sturdy earthenware clay and a thick white glaze. This means it’s hard-wearing and every piece can safely go in the oven, dishwasher, microwave and even the freezer.
Each piece that is made by Marigold and Lettice is totally handmade and a one-off. So, if you see thumb prints in the clay or the glaze that may be thicker in some parts than others, it's because each piece is unique and is what gives our chunky china its specialness, and a different look and feel to mass-produced pottery.
When you first get your chunky china piece you may hear a ‘ping’ - especially the first time the pottery meets with water. If you do, please don’t worry, it's really quite normal and will stop as soon as the glaze/clay settles down together. You may also notice that the bottom of every piece is left unglazed, and this may leave a slight residue on your shelves, but can be easily wiped away with a damp cloth.
Like with all china, over time you may also notice signs of use in the glaze, but these are just signs of the china being well-loved. If this is the case, please be assured, the piece will still be perfectly fine to use.
