This is my second purchase from Calico. Super happy with the beautiful crafted items, attention to detail wrapping, and personal customer care I received. Definitely not my last order!

I cried happy tears!!!

Wow, wow, wow. Danielle certainly did not disappoint and really hit some emotional spots for both my mom and I with our precious Paddy blob! And my friend absolutely LOVED her customized doggo blob too! Highly recommend using her incredible services to create a very cute and precious lasting memory of your beloved pets. It is such a special idea and we will definitely be ordering more in the future for friends and family! (P.S. Her work in general is really quite lovely too! Mugs, bowls, candleholders, coasters and lots more!)

In Memory of Peanut

I commissioned a mini blob of my dog Peanut after she passed away. It’s is the perfect little memorial of her and the attention to detail is just stunning. Although we miss Peanut every day the mini blob brings a smile to our faces when we see her cheeky little face 🐶

Marvelous Moxie Mugs

I purchased a set of two Moxie mugs and I ordered two more the moment my first order arrived, because they’re just perfect! The Moxie mug is functional (you can easily cup a scalding hot cup of coffee in both hands and feel a pleasant warmth) and beautifully handcrafted, with attention to detail and craftsmanship. A set of two mugs makes a perfect and unique housewarming or birthday gift. Reviewed 2 weeks after purchase and would definitely recommend.

Mini Blob

Love it!

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.

A Special Experience

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!

Mini blob - perfect gift for animal lovers

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!

Great gift

Doggy blob made a perfect sentimental gift

Beautiful ceramics

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.

Custom Mini Blob

The blob I received was perfect. Danielle captured my friend's dog so well. The sweetest gift, which I'm sure he will love!

Mini Blob gift

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!

Twin Peaks Place Card Holders

Stunning Rocket Man

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 ❤️

A lovely little blob that brought a smile

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.

Was awesome

You were a super divine host. So natural and fun to be around. Thank you for a divine workshop xx

Workshop experience

Learnt a lot, ate great food and spent some time with my bestie. Would highly recommend the experience - great gift idea too!

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!

2-for-1 Moms & Kids Pottery Workshop in Cape Town
A Wonderful experience

Myself and my daughter had a really wonderful morning with Dani at her Moms & Kids Pottery Workshop. Dani is a great host, she explains everything well, we were given everything we needed to create beautiful pieces (and more!). I would highly recommend this event if you're looking for something a bit different to do when spending time with your kiddo.
