Lily buttons in cobalt blue

Lily buttons in cobalt blue
£8.50 2 Available
Love this


Handmade tin-glaze buttons, terracotta clay with cobalt brush-painted decoration. Tin glaze, also known as delft or majolica, dates back to 11th century Italy and became popular in The Netherlands and England in the 17th century. My buttons are a contemporary take on this centuries-old tradition and add a bit of handmade artiness to clothing and interior textiles. Hand and machine-washable but I recommend you pop your buttoned item into a pillow case before using the washing machine, just to be sure.

Sizes comprise (per pack) 23mm and 25mm dia (approx). If you need a specific size please let me know which pack size you require in Note to Seller, I can also make sizes to order. Each button is individually made and therefore may slightly differ in size and shape.


I started making buttons as part of a series of quilt-inspired pieces called 'Tethered Quilts' and then started using them to adorn cushions, tea cosies and clothes. I thought other people might like to use them too!

The decoration on my 'Lily' buttons is an abstract design inspired by Lily of the Valley flowers and reminds me of spring!

The cushion shows Penstroke buttons in cobalt, as an example of how my buttons can be used.
