About The Porcelain Menagerie

The Porcelain Menagerie

A porcelain menagerie of little treasures, including decorations and wedding favours from The Jewellery Boat® - great little gifts!

My name is Eleanor Watson and I have been a potter for nearly 20 years, firstly as a hobby and more recently teaching and making my own range of "porcelain critters" for sale.

I particularly enjoy creating impressions and textures in the clay and have a huge collection of tools I have built up over the years, some traditional but many objects from nature and of my own design, as I make my own stamps too. The wonderful white of porcelain lends itself well to these techniques and I very much enjoy making and adding to the range of creatures I create every year.

My pieces are all hand made, hand decorated and hand painted, then strung ready for you to hang, perhaps on your Christmas tree or maybe as a wedding favour. I am also a jeweller and am currently working on a collection of porcelain jewellery set in silver and combined with semi precious stones. Watch this space!

I produce a wide range of gifts under the banner of The Jewellery Boat®, and I have a second shop on Folksy where I sell my jewellery, including sterling silver, kiln enamel and anodised aluminium. Check it out! See Eleanor Designs.

I am happy to consider commissions, please get in touch if you have an idea you'd like to talk about, I look forward to hearing from you!
