 Made, not manufactured.

Buying handmade is about more than quality. It is about support for local business, encouraging skilled crafts people and most importantly, bringing home a truly unique piece of artwork. When you buy direct from the maker you get to interact with the creation of your own piece, you have more freedom and choice and you deal with human beings from start to finish. Our business strives to reward hard work, talent, creativity, initiative and personal responsibility, which, we hope reflects in every item we make.

A few lovely comments from our customers

Hello John
I just wanted to let you know that the Bird Bath is a great success. My husband really loves it and it looks perfect in the place I had in mind for it.
I just cannot believe how well the whole enterprise went, from reading the review in Frome Life to getting it set up before Keith came home. And in- between all that your artistry in creating such a lovely piece and your kindness and help to me in enabling it all to happen the way it did.
Thankyou so much and wishing you all
the best for Chelsea!
Hi there

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the beautiful Alium Plant Support that was delivered on Friday. It is now in our garden and looks absolutely wonderful. We are both delighted with it. In addition, your customer service has been excellent and I was so pleased that you could ship the item out to me as quickly as you did. I have been looking at your products for the last few years at Chelsea and Hampton Court and I am now very proud to own one. Thank you so much again.

best wishes
