Paul's News about his Souvenir China

China Decoration, Illustration & Personalisation

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.


There is a really lovely gallery at  Rye Harbour East Sussex called the Avocet Gallery.

Here you can view works by some of the very best local artists.

I have just been pleased to complete a commission to to make some mugs for the Avocet Gallery. They are available for sale along with some of my  other Ceramics.

They serve delicious coffee and cakes etc. Call in and enjoy both the lovely gallery and a welcome break.


This is a new mug  features the beautiful sculpture by Guy Portelli at the top of the High Street

This special edition using only quality British made bone china and decorations was commissioned by and available from British Design British Made 64 High Street, Battle, East Sussex TN33 0AG.  Where you will find a wonderful range of other British made goods.

 This new larger tea mug just produced features the beautiful Sculpture by Guy Portelli which is situated on the roundabout at the top Battle High Street as a striking welcome to Battle. Commissioned in 2016 to mark the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings.

New Fishing Boat Mug

Great new 2018 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 (these mugs can also be purchased there). 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.
