Sweetpea Ceramics - Sweetpea ceramics is a local, small business. Every item is handcrafted in Lancaster and fired twice at ceramic studios in Kendal.

A glaze is then applied by hand before it’s final firing. Jewellery goes through a similar process of making, refining and firing. Sweetpea Ceramics was born out of a desire to create and an exploration of finding stillness, which is reflected in these beautiful, handmade products.
