in your own 'WORD' cereal bowl
All my life my writing has been commented on due to it being oversized and how much paper it meant I got through; the irony is that my sister and Aunts all have similar sized writing so it must be in the genes. Anyway, it seemed the right (or should that write!) thing to do to put it on my pottery.
Don’t take my word for it though (pun intended) as you can now choose your own word and also select your own colour too. Caveat being, that it has to be six letters or less. I don’t mind what you want – flower analogy, names, affirmation-style word or even swearing. It’s your pottery so your choice!
As well as the oversized words themselves the edging of the pieces is also coloured. All will be lowercase, including the first letter.
Will the words/edging be perfectly coloured? Will the words be the same size or same thickness? No, no they won’t – I don’t use transfers or stencils - it’s perfectly imperfect chunky china after all! Each piece is written and painted freehand with heaps of texture and individuality.
- Bright red
- Plum pink (dark pink, heading towards a purple)
- Pearl pink (not pale pink more of a mid pink!)
- Mid blue (blue like the sky)
- Cornflower blue (more vibrant darker blue)
(please note that currently we don't offer pale pink)
You can also choose to add a little rosy red love heart on the piece too (if the word includes an i or j the heat can be in place of the dot!)
By themselves, part of a mismatched (or matching) stack, chunky china bowls are just the ticket for everyday use. Be it for cereal, crumble, risotto, trifle, soup, ice-cream, pasta or popcorn (think you get the idea) this is the perfect size.

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 this is an approximate size as each is handmade so may be slightly different size wise!

Marigold and Lettice: what we are & what we're not
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.
Our china is not fine and delicate, it is chunky and full of texture. It is handmade (and homemade) and has a very different look and feel to mass-produced pottery. It'll have thumb prints and markers marks but it is made with love and we hope it brings you joy for many years.
