Staffordshire Rules


Does Anyone else out there tingle when they see Staffordshire pottery? I especially like the 1790-1820 period when they started to make pieces that reflected current events, and customs. These pieces are a part of what I'm working on for an upcoming Rabbits in Love grouping. Not exactly like the eighteenth century, but in the spirit of that tradition.

This little rabbit with bird, nest, and eggs is so beautiful and I love her! The extra touches like the patch pockets are especially delightful. Julie and Staffordshire are wonderful!

Oh I LOVE this rabbit, but I have always loved your sculptural pieces, even when you did them in bread dough for Mary Strickler's Quilt!

Keep up your great and creative work.
