About

Handmade, contemporary ceramic gifts for all occasions!

Hi!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop. My name is Kate and I'm a potter who lives and works from my studio based in Manchester. I love working with clay and have been doing so for over eight years, taking baby's imprints and producing personalised gifts for occasions such as christenings, weddings and other important milestones in life.

Everything in my shop is handmade to order, and can be customised and personalised exactly to your taste. This ranges from choosing the names, dates and messages written on your item, to the colours, patterns, shapes and ribbons used in the decoration. I enjoy making beautiful, contemporary gifts and keepsakes that not only capture special moments and celebrate precious memories, but also create something that will fit beautifully into any home.

I always love hearing from my customers so if you have a certain design in mind, or an option that you cannot see listed, don't hesitate to contact me and I'll see what I can do!

How it's made

A small, independent, creative business ran by myself!

I pride myself on creating high quality, personalised gifts that create truly special keepsakes. Everything is handmade by myself from start to finish and has a great deal of love poured into each item!

Working with clay is a truly delicate, and time consuming process - a real labour of love. It takes 5 days to make, dry, decorate and fire twice in the kilns before your order is ready, and you can rest assured a great deal of time and care is spent on each item. This means you are getting something truly unique, made to your specification and not churned out of an assembly line - handmade craft at its truest form!

    "I bought this as a gift for the bride from her bridesmaids... we couldn't be happier with it, and the bride loves it! Its a simple charming little gift that anyone with an ounce of taste would appreciate. Kate's communication after a query I made was excellent, and I was really impressed with both the quality of the product and the service provided. Couldn't be better! Thank-you!"

    "Kate Charlton ceramics provided a fantastic service. I had left things quite last minute and consequently if the gift had arrived on the anticipated date it would have been too late for the occasion in question. I emailed Kate when I placed the order, and she replied immediately (and on a Saturday night I might add!) setting out that she would do her best to get the product to me by the date I had requested but also explaining that there were certain issues that could potentially hold it up. The order came well within time and the product was absolutely brilliant. I was hugely impressed with the obvious commitment to the business and the hard work that went into delivering the product in a tighter timescale. Thank you for a very positive experience."
