Nicola Werner Pottery – Welcome

Nicola Werner Pottery

During the Covid-19 lockdown, the pottery is closed to visitors but I continue to make and mail order is easy.

Please see my online shop or contact me direct.

I produce a wide range of domestic ware, one-off commemorative pieces and increasingly tiles, including murals to order. All the work is functional and intended to enhance everyday life.

I can put any inscription on any pot to commemorate birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, retirements, etc. You choose the wording, colouring and patterns from my range and I can post the finished piece direct – or you may collect from here.

Commissions generally take two months although often less. It depends on my workload and whether I have the basic pot fired and at the bisc stage.

I take pride in my efficiency and can assure you of my full care and attention with an individual pot for that special occasion.

My designs grace town and country kitchens across England from Suffolk to Cornwall. They are all unique but there is no mistaking my work. My 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. I love blues, greens, yellows and corals.

I will send you a sketch of the design for your approval and a quotation. And it all costs less than you would expect. There are two sizes of square tile, 4.25″ and 6″.

My tiles owe their rich texture to my painstaking four-day production process.
