It’s gorgeous, thank you! As with all the other products ordered and received from Calico, the quality is superb.
I was wonderfully surprised with my Calico products. I can see the love and the thoughtfulness that went into making each piece.

I’m thrilled with my blob! Danielle has given such attention to detail, right down to the markings on my springer spaniel’s face and the curls at the back of his head. It makes it such an extra special piece and a physical reminder of a much-loved and missed friend. I will treasure it.
Lovely the time with Dani - she is so enthusiastic and talented you can't help but feel creative. I treated my Mum and we had a really fun, creative and happy time together. Great to meet like minded fun people too and the food, bubbles, coffee and venue all just perfect. Thank you Dani!
I ordered a customized blob of my favourite cat as a gift for Christmas. Danielle was able to fulfill the order in time despite all odds set against her with loadshedding prohibiting her from firing up her kiln. The gift was a highlight on Christmas morning - beautifully crafted - a wonderful and novel keepsake of a special pet. I can highly recommend Danielle’s beautiful work, especially if you’re looking for an original gift for a pet lover. Thank you, Danielle!
Doggy blob made a perfect sentimental gift
I love my beautiful tea light house. It’s handmade to perfection and arrived in great timing to enjoy for Christmas. Thank you, Danielle for all your hard work and love that you put into every item.
Dani was so wonderful and kind and gave each of us special attention throughout the class to make sure we were happy with our items. The vibes were amazing and the food was fantastic. 5 stars all round ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can’t fault this class on anything.
The blob I received was perfect. Danielle captured my friend's dog so well. The sweetest gift, which I'm sure he will love!
These were just the cutest little spookies ever!!!
Really well made and adds that little extra touch to your Halloween décor :)
Calico Ceramics holds a special place in my heart and the hearts of my family. For the last two years we have reached out to Dani to make us bespoke Christmas ornaments for each person in my family. Its a moment to reflect on the year gone past and decide what we want the year to be remembered for. While this is only our second year doing it, receiving the ornaments is a complete joy. On the 1st of December when we put up and decorate the Christmas tree, we each get to put our exceptionally crafted ornaments up and remember the years we have had. Dani goes to great lengths to ensure we get ornaments that are detailed, beautiful and just right. Reaching out to Dani is a highlight of my year - she is warm, generous and incredibly thoughtful. We plan to do this for years to come and I couldn't recommend Calico more highly! We are so grateful!
Thank you so much for the gorgeous mini blob. It was a gift for a friend of mine who had recently lost a much loved pet. We were both blown away by the amazing detail and resemblance you managed to create. Thank you so much! I know it's something she's going to cherish!
I wanted a personal, lovely wedding gift for friends, so this was a perfect one - such a beautiful present and so beautifully made x
These little place card holders are such a cute and classy addition to my table, I'm very happy with them and can't wait to use them for our next special occasion.
This little guy is even cuter in real life! Dani has such skill and you can tell how much love and care goes into her craft. Love love love ❤️
Our little Lola blob is so special. Her eyes were captured perfectly - she was a boar coloured wire-haired dachshund so not an easy doggy to replicate at all.
Calico Ceramics also went the extra mile making sure I could collect timeously even though loadshedding was putting huge pressure on the firing process.
I’m so impressed my blob and the service I’m about to place another order - this time for a golden retriever.
I ordered a Mini Blob for my boyfriend of his Schnauzer and we are totally in love with it! It's super cute and it lives on his desk now so he can have his little one with him all the time. Perfect gift!
