🤩 A couple of my jugs have escaped to the Chateau!🤩
A few weeks ago, I got an order that was to be gifted to the brilliant artist, designer and TV personality Angel Strawbridge and my lovely customer kindly sent me this gorgeous photo of Angel with her Round Chimney Pottery gifts 🤩🥰
Thank you so much to Nina and Angel for the pictures – we love watching the Chateau series on the telly so it’s a massive buzz! 🤩😊
Now accepting card payments!
It took me a while! 😂
But I have now got a card machine set-up to accept card payments… so placing an order just got a little bit easier!
There is now a card payment option that I can either send you as a secure payment link for my Friday doorstep deliveries – or you can pay by card on collection.
A special day in the Guernsey Diary
Looking forward to Liberation Day next week, a big local highlight of our year here in Guernsey…the flags are out and we’ll def be having cake! 🥳🇬🇧🇬🇬🍰
Pinch Punch – 1st of the month!🌱
It’s so encouraging this time of year to see those vibrant yellow trumpets popping up around the island – the first signs of longer, lighter days and hopefully warmer weather to come!
Sincere thanks to all my lovely customers for all the recent orders and purchases – your continued support is so very much appreciated ❤️
I am now fully booked for bespoke and hand-print pieces until the 7th March – as on February 11th, we are going to America for a long-planned 3-week trip to reunite with family and friends (as long as none of us gets Covid between now and then!😬🤞)
I have been working on some daffodil themed pieces to bring you some the joys of Spring in pottery form!
I am still doing free deliveries every Friday and have some pieces available to purchase for this Friday’s delivery (or collection from our house in St Saviour anytime – on confirmation of sale).
As ever, pieces are limited due to the nature of all the pieces being hand-painted by me – please see “Shop- Pick up today” page for all pieces currently available.
My social media pages – Facebook and Instagram are not currently being monitored for messages and comments- apologies for any inconvenience, if you fancy any of the pieces listed for yourself (or for a gift!) – please email me firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp or text me on 07781 419284 to arrange payment and delivery/collection.
In the meantime, there are lots of pieces available at the lovely independent shops I stock with (with more stock coming in the next week before we go!):
Eleven in the Arcade
Cadeaux in Town Square
And The Guernsey Picture Framers and Art Gallery app. Vale Church.
Thank you all so much for your wonderful continued support of my little pottery business.
I am now fully booked for made-to-order pieces, including handprints, until Jan’2022. Apologies for any inconveniences.
There are still pieces available at Eleven in the Arcade; Cadeaux in Town Square and The Guernsey Picture Framers and Art Gallery opposite Vale Church, and I will also update my “Pick up Today!” page with as many new pieces as I can make between now and Xmas!
Wishing you all a peaceful relaxing lead-up to the festive fun!
I’m sure you’ve all heard the news about the worldwide problems with supply chains breaking down. I recently discovered for myself how real and wide ranging these issues are – and in the lead up to Xmas too! 😬
Unfortunately, there are several pieces in my normal range that I just won’t be able to get back in until next year 😔
Onwards and upwards though! I have managed to source some beautiful alternatives – like this lovely tall jug! Brilliant for long stems and, as always food-safe for drinks.
Please note: Although I have been able to source some fantastic new pieces, unfortunately, there will be some popular items that I will run out of very soon and not be able to restock until 2022.
These pieces include:
The 10oz standard mug; the tiny dish; the curvy small; medium and big jugs and the straight half litre jugs.
Sincere apologies – it is completely out of my control, but I’m keeping an eye on it and will bring these pieces back as soon as they do become available.
Hope you’ve all had a fantastic summer and are keeping well.
I am currently working on my website, please bear with me – I am not the most tech-savvy! But I do hope to publish an easier-to-view website with options to order pieces online asap!
I am still doing free local doorstep deliveries every Friday, so please get in touch via email email@example.com or whatsapp/message/call me on 07781 419284 with any enquiries.
Due to the nature of the business, as I paint and dip each piece by hand – all pieces currently shown in the “Gallery..” sections are made-to-order, but I can turn these stock design orders around relatively quickly – within 3/4 days.
I am working on building up stock that’s “ready to go”, which will be photographed and published on the “Shop – Pick up Today” page as soon as it comes out of the kiln. I am also in the process of setting up easy online payment options – in the meantime, I hope the current payment options (by internet bank transfer/cash on delivery) are not too inconvenient.
I know few are ready for the C-word! However, as Round Chimney Pottery is just me (and the cats!) I close my order book early every year – to ensure that there is enough time to fulfil all bespoke and personalised orders in time for Xmas. This year has added Covid-related complications of stock supplies and deliveries due to the shortage of lorry drivers and staff at manufacturing depots etc…but I shall do my best to complete all requests!
If you’d like any bespoke/personalised hand-painted pottery pressies for Xmas, please confirm order asap – I’ll be closing my order book for 2021 at midnight on November 5th.
Thank you all so much for your continued support!
