Bone china and other homewares are all designed by me. I can also offer a hand drawn illustration service so items can be personalised. Short run bone china mug or other bone china whiteware decoration service available.

FRIDGE MAGNETS

I have been working on a range of Fridge magnets made from my hand drawings as not only are they proving to be very popular but it is giving me the opportunity to extend my souvenir range especially for any local area. 

This is a design and production service I can offer for  souvenir magnets  for any place or area. Unlike many suppliers who require large quantity orders, as with all my products, they are available as short runs. Just contact me to discuss.

New Fishing Boat Mug

Great new  design larger size bone china tea mug. Featuring some of the beach launched fishing boats that can be found on the picturesque Fishermans Beach, the Stade, off Rock a Nore Road in Hastings Old Town.  Hastings has one of the last beach launched fishing fleets in the country with the boats, when they come in, being hauled up the pebble beach by tractors or winches on steel hawsers. 

There is a very interesting Fishermans Museum in Rock a Nore that tells the fascinating history of Fishing in Hastings.  Along the same road you will also see Hastings famous net shops (net sheds some call them) and a picture of these unique structures can be seen on the inside rim of this beautiful mug. Made from my own hand drawn  design, decorated and fired by me at my studio in the nearby village of Fairlight, these mugs will serve  as a much loved tea or coffee mug and a permanent memory of your visit or your planned future visit to Hastings. 

The Bone china mugs are sourced from the English Pottery town of Stoke on Trent. They are both microwave and dishwasher safe. 

Mugs available from the  Fishermans Museum or on line from this site.
