Although they may appeal to the collector, all of the pots are designed to be practical items and dishwasher safe. The work is inspired by nature, European majolica, faience and Delftware and reflects a need for colour in everyday life.

An Aga is the focal point of the home - the perfect site for a mural.
Nicola's designs grace town and country kitchens across England from Suffolk to Cornwall. They are all unique but there is no mistaking her work. Her tiles are inspired by nature and by the pottery styles of European majolica, faience and Delftware. They often feature hens and my own invented Bird, a long-beaked creature with splendid tail and beady eye.

Any inscription on any pot can be made to commemorate birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, retirements, etc. You can choose the wording, colouring and patterns from a range.

Commissions generally take two months although often less and can be delivered to you in the post or collected from the workshop.
