can be personalised
Organise someone's desk! A fun pot for pencils - colourful and practical.
Pencil Pots make a wonderful gift to give to your teacher, child, grandparent or anyone who has an untidy collection of pencils on their desk!. Because they can be personalised to your wishes, they make superb presents for Christmas, birthdays, christenings and practically any other celebratory event. Even though the pot has pencils painted on it, you could secretly put pens or paint brushes into it as well!
Each Pencil Pot is individually hand-painted to order.
Each ceramic piece that I sell really is individually hand-painted. As a result, all my pieces are slightly different and therefore unique. Because of their exclusively hand-made nature, they take a full five days to produce, each piece having two painting stages and up to three firings in the kiln.
All can be personalised with a name on the pencil pot itself and with a greeting on the base. There are two sizes, small and large, and the lettering is painted using upper and lower-case letters. The message on the base should not be more than six words. (eg. 'Love from John and Mary Smith')
Each item is beautifully packaged in a special brown cardboard box, tied up with string and labeled with the name of the person who will be receiving it. Because you will almost certainly want to inspect your pencil pot before passing it on as a gift, the packaging has no glue or tape and can easily be opened up and re-closed. The box will still look as unique and beautifully designed when the gift is opened as when it was first delivered.
These pencil pots are made from earthenware clay, painting and glazing in lead free glazes.
My pottery is not oven or microwave safe. Each item is technically dishwasher proof but I cannot accept responsibility for cracks in the glaze that a hot wash may cause.
Please check the spelling of names that are to be painted on your order very carefully. It is not possible to rectify mistakes afterwards!
