Sean Keefe / Dan Moor - Muggins Pottery
What do Muggins Pottery make? It's quite simple really - they make pottery with faces on. Cats, dogs, mice, mugs, goblets, boxes, teapots, bowls. The whole range.
Muggins pride themselves in making and supplying high quality pottery to their own individual and unique designs, something they've been doing for over 30 years.
They don't mass-produce their pottery - every item and every face that has ever been made at Muggins is hand-made and unique.
Along with Sean, Dan Moor makes everything by hand. One of the aspects that ensures the continuing quality and desirability is that just these two craftsmen create all the pieces produced at Muggins. Whilst this limits the availability of the pottery it means that it is their skills, knowledge and humour that will maintain the unique characteristics of their designs.
