The Story

I have a favorite mug. It was given to me by my god-daughter, Sarah, when she was born. I use it religiously every morning because it’s just the right weight, it sits nicely in my hand and, most importantly, holds a generous amount (there’s no time to go back and refill in the morning!). It’s special because it was painted by her, which makes it uniquely one-of-a-kind and makes that cup of tea something more wonderful.

The Little White Box was an idea born from that very cup of tea. The fear that one day I could lose or break my mug made me set about creating the ‘country mug’ and, as the idea brewed, more ceramic pieces progressively came along with it.

My designs are from the heart and proudly made in Waiuku, New Zealand. Each design is unique and hand-painted, creating a little artwork in itself. The Little White Box is a gift that keeps giving and I hope one of my ceramic pieces brings you as much enjoyment as it does me.
