About Jo's Little People

Jo's Little People

Individually handmade polymer clay figures. Quirky, unusual & collectable.

Welcome to the world of Jo’s Little People (AKA ClayFiguresUK)

I began creating my little people a long time ago as presents, (mainly for my parents who received “Little Mam & Dad” on numerous occasions!) then my nieces were portrayed as Little Angels for their nursery teachers. About 20 years ago Jo’s Little People was created. After my eldest daughter was born in 2002 I became a self-employed, single parent. My life has changed a bit since then, I am married with three fantastic daughters now. My husband is very much outnumbered!
I’ve attended various makers fairs around my home in Cumbria and supplied a few local outlets. My main stockist is an independent artisan shop called Cherrydidi who is based in Keswick but more recently have opened another shop in Ambleside, both in the beautiful Lake District.
My figures are based on people I’ve met and my strange sense of humour.
All my figures are designed then entirely handmade from polymer clay by me. I never use moulds for any of my figures. Every figure starts life as a lump of polymer clay, so they are slightly different and unique, the slightest change to facial expression creates a new little character each time.
I love making commissions too, it’s always nice to do something completely different and one of a kind.
