Customer Testimonials

"Once I realised it was possible to commission one of a kind ceramics with my friend's beloved cat's face on it I immediately emailed Suzie. The whole process was very smooth, the painting not only looks just like him, but also perfectly captures his personality as well! I could not praise Suzie enough for her amazing artwork and top quality service!" - Dolim, U.K.
"I commissioned Gus and Gordon, my friend's gorgeous ginger tabbies, onto a teapot and mug set. From start to finish I was extremely happy with the process and Suzie's communication, from our discussions about the commission, to choosing the whiteware, to previewing the illustrations and the incredible final product. The illustrations are amazing and the attention to detail is exquisite. A perfect present for any cat-loving friend!" - Fiona, U.K.


Please see the prices below as guidelines for our typical pricing. We set a tiered pricing system which is based on the level of detail required and the scale of the illustration. We ask that you email directly for an exact price as we can work to most budgets and requirements depending on the level of detail required and which white ware you would like!

We can work to very high detail bespoke pieces, true artworks and treasured gifts that will take time and skill to create from beginning to end. 

However we know that for some people something simpler will fit the bill perfectly, and for this we offer a range of services.

We can also illustrate on any of our other white-ware such as trinket trays and teapots etc, just let us know what you fancy!

The choice is up to you, simply send over your request to and we will do the rest.

    Ts & Cs:
    We require 6 weeks notice to take individual commissions onboard due to the care taken to make these treasured work of art. We are also subject to seasonal delays in getting the item printed and fired by our manufacturer so please allow for lots of notice for all bespoke orders to avoid disappointment. The lead time will be variable depending on how many commissions we have and the manufacturers but we will try to accommodate last minute requests as much as possible.
    We also require good quality, well lit photos to complete your job and may have to turn down a commission if the photos are not clear enough.
    Bespoke items are non refundable.
