Coaster on a dog (Parsnip)
Coasters don't have to be boring or used only on side tables... they can also be as kitsch as anything, because why the devil not! Ta da to our doggy coasters - camp yes, loud and proud defo!
Each dog is totally unique and a one off - perfectly imperfect (would you expect anything less) but perfect for candle or to show off a vase of flowers. Of course for me it was obvious to put a can of Diet Coke on being that it is my fav drink! It's slightly reduced because he has a little mark on one ear - nothing damaged just the join line shows up a bit...
The coasters aim to be as level as possible but there is a slight tilt and slant so balance things carefully (check out the pictures because this is the one you're getting - it's not made to order, it is already made, but you can change the name if you wan!)
Also, you will see there is a little hole in her bottom (blushing) this wasn't me trying to be anatomically correct - it is an airhole, so he didn't explode in the kiln! The other dogs have it underneath but as he is long and thin it had to be this way! Transparency is everything!!!
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.
