Edward Lear (1812 – 1888) was an artist, humorist and traveller. He wrote his famous poem ‘The Owl and the Pussy Cat’ for Jane Symond’s three-year old daughter, Janet. This, his second nonsense book, was published in 1871, titled, ‘Nonsense Songs, Stories, Botany and Alphabets’. His first ‘Book of Nonsense’ published in 1846 was written for the grandchildren of the 13th Earl of Derby. He illustrated his limericks and nonsense songs with his inimitable humorous drawings.

Personalised Tiles Firing Schedule
Specially made tiles are added to firings as scheduled below. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for us to make your tile.
Notice regarding personalised tiles: With the coronavirus outbreak almost all of the heritage shops and galleries we supply closed until further notice. As of July, some are starting to reopen but we don't know whether this will result in enough orders to get production going again. For now the kiln is switched off. However, with a raft of new designs on the way we will do some production to get these completed and available to purchase in the next month or two. If you are interested in a personalised tile please email us with your details and I'll keep you posted about upcoming firings.
