Ceramic Handprints

Our ceramic handprint keepsakes are the perfect way to capture the handprints and footprints of your little ones (or even not so little ones) at that exact moment in time. They will never be this size again so capture it either as a ceramic clay imprint or on one of our many ceramic mugs, plates, clocks, oil burners, vases and more! These can only be done in our shop so come along and choose yours today!


For our pre-made ceramics such as plates and mugs etc; adding your prints is simple and can be done just by dropping in (no appointment necessary).
To make a ceramic imprint please make an appointment as this is done in raw, wet, natural clay so we need time to prepare the clay in advance for you. Shapes, colours and writing for your items is all your choice so take a look at the photos to see what some examples of what we offer.
