Gallery Thea was established in 2001 in the coastal village of Walberswick, but is now located across the river in the seaside town of Southwold.

Thea Cutting produces hand drawn illustrations on earthenware bisque pottery which is sourced where possible from the UK; we try our utmost to support our local community and strongly believe in supporting the British manufacturing industry.

Thea’s influences  in the main include nature, her coastal surroundings as well as 1950s and Scandinavian designs. She has a love for organic forms and simplicity as well as a fondness for colour .

Gallery Thea is passionate about design and loves to interpret the customer’s idea as a one off ceramic piece, resulting in a unique creation. If you wish to have a design created especially for you, please either call or email us and we will be happy to help.

All of our hand painted personalised pottery takes a little longer to produce at busy periods such as Easter, summer holidays and Christmas , but the lead time on orders is usually between 2-4 weeks.

Gallery Thea pottery is dishwasher safe (but will last longer if washed by hand) . It should never be put into an oven or microwave.

Our colours and designs may vary from time to time due to the hand painted nature of our products.
