Oval pedestal dish
Our obsession with chunky china knows no bounds, but perhaps our new style of pottery on pedestals pushes us over the edge! Each pedestal is moulded purely by hand allowing us to push deep insets into the clay to give these fabulous (we could be modest but hey, we can’t stop ourselves!) fluted lines.
Perfectly imperfect and all the better for it, they give new meaning to the chunk in chunky china. However, this is balanced by the fabulous shapes of an oval dish atop of the pedestal. Using a vintage French dish as the mould for the top, the lines are sumptuous because while we’ve followed the original lines we’ve not skimped on the clay and of course given it our signature chunk!
This is currently a one-off piece but who knows, we may just have to make more!

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.
The dish is 29 cm long, 17 cm wide and around 8 cm tall (including the pedestal)
