Initial circle decoration
These little initial circles are fab for hanging on door handles (or anywhere), great gifts or whatever you fancy.
The initials are hand drawn and are deliberately rough and individual... choose from the initial of your choice being enclosed in either heart or circle, with with plain white or pink edging... what's more you have two sizes to choose from - small or not so small!
The single capital initial will come on a glorious rough silk pink ribbon (please note that the ribbon's colour will vary as it is recycled and stunning! But will be of a pink tone... the ribbon/initials hanging on my kitchen cupboard door is an old peach one that I don't have anymore!!)
Please write your initial in the box and whether you want a circle or heart...
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.
Please note that this is an approximate size as each piece is a one off...
Small - 3 cm round
Not so small - 5 cm round
IMPORTANT timing and production information
Getting your perfect piece to you is our priority but as each piece is made to order, 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.
