Using handbuilding techniques, Hollie pinches and coils clay to create one off pieces of pottery in her studio in Portsmouth, UK. Each pot is completely one of a kind as the main tools used are her own two hands. Pinching is a slow and thoughtful process and the maker’s marks are visible in the surface of the clay, reflecting the process from the raw material to finished product. The high fired clay used means that the pieces are made to last and be used every day, bringing joy to the user’s daily rituals.

We believe that investing in well made, useful items which bring happiness to your life is the way forward. Goodbye mass produced, disposable objects which are destined for landfill. Nice Pear is committed to caring for the earth and so your handmade ceramics will arrive in a plastic free packaging which you can recycle or pop into your compost bin! We are constantly working toward making our processes as sustainable as possible. No bone is used in any of our raw materials meaning that the pots are completely vegan.
