Pigscombe Makers

Looe, Cornwall

Everywhere there are opportunities to be creative for me and I am always making something.

I love to make something that has a practical use but also things for pure decoration.

My home in Cornwall is full of things I have made and walls and furniture I have embellished.

The story behind the business
Meet Pigscombe Makers

I find endless inspiration in nature around me, the sea and life itself. My flying birds are all birds that I see around me ( with the exception of the Cornish chough which I have yet to see but allow myself to dream). I love designing these birds, often bringing colour and pattern in unexpected ways. I had one of these birds, a seagull, when I was younger and I have so enjoyed reinventing these moving birds in my own way.

In the same way, the series of 3 flying wall plaque birds, are inspired by the classic Bewick ceramic flying ducks and I have expanded the range into many of the birds I love and live with everyday.
