About Us

Hello, my name is Claire and Periwinkle and Clay started back in 2012 when I created a Christmas gift for my sister by transferring her Instagram photos onto ceramic tiles. 

Very quickly others were asking for similar pieces and I was inspired to begin my small business journey by creating unique personalised designs.  After having my daughter Eliza in 2014 I decided to run the business full time and leave the Corporate world behind.

Over the years the business grew and changed and very quickly got too messy and big for the family home.  We are now located in a beautiful Macclesfield town centre location not far from our family home in Macclesfield. 

Life is full of ups and downs, and I believe in celebrating what’s special, even the small things.  I’m so inspired by creating gifts for those milestone moments for you to treasure and make you, your family, and friends smile and remember.  Displaying your special memories is, and always will be, at the heart of Periwinkle and Clay.

Over the last few years, I've enjoyed meeting more of you at local markets and through running classes, workshops and paint-a-pot parties.  2024 sees a new chapter for the business as I expand my services to the local area of Macclesfield and offer more pottery workshops, pottery painting as well as designing and creating more of my pottery pieces to buy.

My joy comes from creating and designing and it's safe to say I am happiest at the bench conjuring up something new or helping someone create something from scratch - whether that's from clay or painting a design.

Do you have an idea for a special piece or a feature wall?  Perhaps you'd like to make a Bollington Bear or paint a piece of pottery? or perhaps you'd like to organise an event with friends or colleagues to paint a pot?  Either call us on 01625 479 064 or email us at team@periwinkleandclay.com to discuss.
