Jolly Good News

Pink & Purple Polka Dot

Good morning!

Since my new clay arrived, production is in full swing here and i’m working like a mad woman! I have added some pieces back onto my website and will be adding more over the next few weeks. If you have placed a customer order recently it is currently being bisque fired in the kiln and I will be in touch when it is ready. Thank you for your patience!

Knotty but Nice

Yesterday I went on a little road trip delivery to Edinburgh with Maite from Knotty but Nice. It was so good to get out of my very hot workshop for a while! We were delivering stock to An Independent Zebra (formerly Popping up in Stockbridge).

An Independent Zebra

The new premises are great. It’s a much bigger shop full of fabulous independent designers and makers and I’m so happy to have my work there again.

I’m back to it this morning, attaching handles and making lots of butter dishes, so hopefully it won’t be too long before the rest of my stockists have some Tea with Jud pottery on their shelves again. I’ll keep you posted.

Until then, enjoy the sunshine!


Unique Shopping Experience


Potfest Display 2018

Hello there!

I can’t believe Potfest has been and gone! What a wonderful weekend! Thank you to everyone who came and visited my stall, and all my customers old and new. I received so many lovely comments and even got my picture in the paper with my sink!!

Giant Strawberry

I had a few pots left over and they are now available to purchase at the end of my lane, from my quirkiest outlet yet! If you are driving up or down the A93 Tea with Jud pottery is now for sale in the giant strawberry! Yes, you read that right!

Polka Dot Pots

The blueberries and cherries are still growing at the minute, and will be available later in the summer, but as well as my pots, there are local strawberries and raspberries for sale. There is also honey, which is made by the bees on the farm where I live, so if you are passing be sure and stop and pick yourself up some fresh, fruity, juicy goodness. #shoplocal

More updates coming soon re: tea cosies and stock!

Cheerio for now




Good morning!

You may have noticed I’ve not been around much this year. Unfortunately sometimes things just aren’t as they seem behind the scenes. I won’t go into detail but thankfully things are on the up again.

Belfast Sink

This weekend I will be exhibiting for the first time at Potfest, Scone Palace. It’s a big deal to me, and i’m pretty excited about it. I’ve even got a “Belfast Sink” made out of wood for my display. I’ve been desperate to show it to you all for aaaaagggggeeeeeeeesssssss! I love it so much! Thank you Tom, you are a genius!

Potfest Preview

After Potfest I will let you know when my website is open for business again and when the shops are restocked. It will probably take me a while to get back to the same production level I was at before but if you could just bear with me that would be wonderful. Thanks!

Potfest is open at 10am TODAY – 4.30pm, same on Saturday and Sunday.

In other news, unfortunately I have had to close the web shop temporarily. I hope it will be open again within the next couple of months, but until then, the only place you can find me is at Potfest in Scone Palace, Perthshire. It’s on from 10am – 4.30pm daily, 8th- 10th June. Maybe I’ll see you there.

Cheerio for now!


No More Commissions

The Cabin – Tree Mugs


Those of you who know me will know I have always wanted my own coffee shop, those of you who don’t, it’s a fact! It has been the driving force behind Tea with Jud, before it even existed. Today I have some news… just a little bit of news, don’t get too excited though… as of now I will no longer be making commissions. Continue Reading →

FINALLY the Small Mugs are here!

Polka Dot Small Mugs


If you follow me on Instagram you might remember I teased you with a picture of a new mug last May! Yes, I know that was a long time ago! Time seems to go so fast sometimes but in pottery land it feels like it goes very very slow. Anyway, after thoroughly testing the new mug myself, I made a small batch and took them out to my markets before Christmas. They proved to be a winner so I have now added them to my Pottery Range.

Yellow Small Mug

They are exactly the same style as my normal mugs, just shorter, hold less liquid and will suit you if you are in a rush! Or if you prefer a smaller mug of tea or coffee.

As of today, these Small Mugs are available to buy in my online shop in both the Primary and Polka Dot Ranges.

Popping Up in Stockbridge

I’m very sad to say that Popping Up in Stockbridge will be closing at the end of this month. Thank you so much to Jill and the team for organising something so wonderful. It has been a very special experiment to take part in and I am looking forward to the next one!

If you would like to be kept informed of any updates you can sign up to their mailing list here.

Thank you also to any customers who bought my pottery in the shop! I have been flabbergasted each month with the amount of sales and support. It has been great!

You have 23 days left to discover all the fabulous-ness in store, so go and check it out if you can!

Bye bye for now pop up!

“Hello, is it me you’re looking for?”

Pastel Heart Mugs

Hello, remember us?

It’s the Pastel Heart Range – back by popular demand! Hooray!

This range is a Limited Edition and exclusive to Tea with Jud. There are now Espresso Mugs and Jugs to complement the original Mugs so you just have to decide which is your favourite!

Limited Edition Pastel Hearts

Hmmm… decisions, decisions!

Once you make up your mind, then there is only one more decision, whether you will treat your Valentine, or keep if for yourself?

Limited Edition Pastel Hearts

They are now available in my online shop, but when they are gone, they are gone! (until next time).

Have a LOVELY day!

PS: just so you know I have an exciting promotion planned and if that’s not enough, I’ll be launching my “Small Mug” very soon!


Turquoise Polka Dot Wedding Set


I cant believe I didn’t get to wish you all a Merry Christmas. I was floored by the flu – and with no one else to do my admin, this highlights the disadvantages of being a one woman business!

While I was home I did manage a trip to The Craft Room in Comber to deliver some more stock. What a fabulous shop! There are so many gorgeous handmade goodies in there. The worst thing about delivering pots in person is trying to resist buying everything else in the shop!

Anyway, I am back to work now, planning for 2018 and will be busy restocking the shelves over the next few months. I’ve got some exciting things lined up  and will also be making a few changes over the year too, but don’t worry you will be kept up to date with all my plans!

I wish you a very happy and prosperous year too.

Cheerio for now!
