Bottle Kiln Brooch – Holly


Why not represent your love of Stoke-on-Trent’s pottery heritage at Christmas time with this gorgeous bottle kiln brooch holly design?

Hand painted on wood, affix this brooch to any garment/scarf/bag for that quirky little nod to the pot banks of the past.

Please note, you have the choice of packaging material for this brooch.

An additional cost is added to include a box for the brooch within your order. This extra cost covers the delivery cost to send a larger parcel. P&P remains free should you not require a box.

The box is a brown cardboard box, made from recycled card and paper with a recycled eco-fibre fill insert.


Bottle Kiln Brooch – Holly

This gorgeous bottle kiln brooch is made from amazing quality eco-friendly wood which has been laser cut into the shape of a Bottle Kiln.

It has then been painted with a cute, christmassy holly pattern with the traditional red berries and glossy green leaves. The back of the brooch is plain.

There are two silver plated butterfly brooch backs securely attached to the back of the kiln. The two backs stop the kiln from spinning whilst being worn and holds them securely upon your garment.

Bottle Kilns / Bottle Ovens have become one of my bestsellers and it is what I’m known for! A pair of Wear It Quirky Bottle Kiln earrings were worn on the Great Pottery Throw Down.

You can find more designs including the stud, necklace and teapot version of this design plus more jewellery which represents the pottery industry of Stoke-on-Trent here.

The Quirky Process

Each item of jewellery at Wear It Quirky are made, packaged and shipped from Stoke-on-Trent; the heart of the Potteries! More specifically, the entire process takes place in my garage-come-craft-studio.

The jewellery is therefore designed and made entirely by hand by me, Victoria, making every single pair unique and truly special. I share lots of behind the scenes of the quirky process on Instagram and Facebook.

Please note because the jewellery is handmade, there may be slight differences from one to the other and sometimes, some slight imperfections.

About the Kilns

There was once approximately 2000 bottle kilns in Stoke-on-Trent. Now only 47 remain.

All of my ancestors worked within the pottery industry. My Great-Aunt Nellie worked until she retired at the wonderful Wedgwood. When she retired as a Paintress, Wedgwood allowed her to decorate a plate which she was then gifted. My Mum still has the plate today.

My Grand-Father was a Cod Placer, as they paid for each piece they made successfully, my Grand-father had to make sure each one was placed correctly to ensure it fired correctly.

My Grand-father passed away when I was very young. I would have loved to have spoken to him about his time as a Cod Placer.
