Humour has always been evident in her work, and probably helped her ride the storm of 2 recessions. She gradually got her work on display in galleries and shops around the country and abroad, and gained some very loyal collectors along the way.

Hannah took a break in 1999 to have her children, and after a couple of years off, she found a local shared studio and started working part-time. At this point she also decided to change the way she worked, and started slip-casting, still birds! After much experimenting Hannah joined forces with a Sri Lankan manufacturer and launched her first ranges of tableware in 2011.

Hannah's designs have sold all around the world to beautiful shops and websites like Anthropologie (US and UK), The Woodland Trust and Graham and Green. The company now exhibits at 4 international trade shows.

Today the business is doing what it can to reduce waste and look after our environment, all of the packaging is recycled cardboard, with no plastics involved. They are trying to be as sustainable as possible, and have joined forces with 2 conservaton projects to help protect the animals that are the inspiration for the business.

*Update* We're on the move! I've wanted to return to a more rural setting for a long time and the first stage of that plan is under way. We've sold our house and workshop in Bristol and we're temporarily stopping with my Mum in Corsham whilst we start work on the new home and workshop in Wiltshire.
