We’ve long had a love for the classical bust style vases you can find but they weren’t chunky enough and all a bit mainstream so, in true Marigold and Lettice style, we’ve decided to put a chunky-spin on it and create our own!
Now the structure of each will be the same (we took our own cast from a large dolls head and use that to create the base) but that is where the similarities will end. Each-and-everyone is unique as we sculpt the mouth, nose, eyes/eyebrows and ears individually – and that is before we add the elements such as wavy top, flower crown or full on ‘wig’ and earrings!
Wavy (plain) top - £115
Wavy (plain) top with flower earrings - £120
Flower crown - £125
Full on wig - £150
Full on wig with flower earrings - £155
Will it be perfect? No! Will it be perfectly imperfect? Absolutely! Who wants mainstream when you can have one made just for you… perfect as a vase or plant pot, the choice is yours!

Marigold and Lettice pottery is (hand)made to be loved and used, and happily goes in the oven, dishwasher and microwave. Our chunky china has a very different look and feel to mass-produced pottery; each piece is handmade so expect to see thumb prints and perfectly imperfect glazing - it’s what makes our pottery unique and full of character
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), the process takes a MINIMUM OF THREE TO FOUR WEEKS although this is just a guide and if it goes over 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 TO ORDER

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.
