Welcome. I am Marie Canning.

I am a vegan, environmentalist maker of animal and nature inspired ceramics designed for the sensitive souls amongst us who love nothing more than to feel beautifully connected with the natural world.

Designing and creating for nature and animal lovers is how I deeply process the overwhelming beauty and wonder of the natural world.

I have a rich curiosity for nature, a passion to care for our planet and a deep respect for the non human animals who tread amongst us. I make my creations in the hope they help to elevate animals to a revered place in our minds and to assist in the collective shift towards protecting our planet and all her inhabitants.

Handmade in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, my natural ceramic collections can be worn or placed around the nature and animal lovers home, allowing nature into all aspects of our lives. reminding us of this wondrous planet we call home and the conscious role we’d like to play upon it.

I have a strong desire to help people connect more deeply with nature, animals and therefore themselves. The clay is simply my own personal medium to get messages across and alongside writing on my blog, my most preferred method of communication with the outside world.

Animal inspired ceramics

Centre stage sits a peaceful cow and a friendly frog sharing an apple upon a waterlily covered lake. It is designed to be played with, each porcelain element separate to the other, to open up the childlike curious spirit dormant in the adult. And perhaps, while your being is light and open to playfulness, so might your heart be open, to the plight of the farmed animal….”
