The beauty of animals and birds has inspired artists since the dawn of time, when early humans first drew their images onto cave walls. Ceramic art too has always found inspiration in the natural world, and the animal kingdom continues to be celebrated by Bronte Porcelain’s artists in our wildlife giftware collection. Including vases, trays, boxes and cups of various sizes, the wildlife giftware range celebrates in particular the beauty of British bird life, from charming garden visitors like the Blue Tit and Goldfinch to the dazzling Kingfisher and elegant Swan. We also offer a delightful range of Butterfly boxes, where the brightness and delicacy of these enchanting creatures is beautifully conveyed by the artist’s brush.
While some of these pieces are purely decorative, others are both beautiful and functional, such as the trinket and jewellery boxes and tea and coffee cups. Each one is created to the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship, to make a gift that will be received with delight, then treasured and displayed for many years to come.
As with everything produced by Bronte Porcelain, each giftware item is made and painted entirely by hand in our Worcestershire studio, using fine English bone china, special ceramic pigments, fine glazes and in many cases a finishing touch of precious metal; platinum, silver or 22 carat gold. On some of these pieces we can also offer to include your own message or inscription, hand-inscribed by our artists, to add a truly personal touch.
