Shakespeare’s Birthplace

Filed under: Ceramics, Front Page — marilyn @ 10:04

shakespearebirthplaceHC

As part of the 400 Years Celebration of Shakespeare’s Legacy from his death in 1616, Hazle has modelled his Birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon as a 3D Moneybox. It is too long and low to be a flatback ceramic. We wanted this to be on APoB and it doesn’t fit in our standard Streets! Click on the ceramic for an informative feature page – and an ordering button for those who wish to buy.

New Series: Streets by Trade

Filed under: Ceramics, Front Page — admin @ 16:20

We started developing this idea in 2015, Hazle’s 25th Anniversary, as another way of looking at Hazle History. A lot of the trades and professions portrayed by Hazle Ceramics have been painted in diverse ways on different buildings. We thought it would be interesting to build streets with as many examples of the same trade we could find.

One early and popular business was the Chemist shop in 1991 and Chemistry is our first street. Apart from the Chemist itself, with a Hazle rather than Hazle Boyles front, all the other examples are retired. Some have one piece for sale and some do not.

Further examples are likely to include Toytown, A Yard of Ale, Any Old Irons and much more. Only six ceramics fit on an APoB street so some trades will need several! It takes time to develop feature pages for every ceramic so the next one could be a while… We plan to keep a record of the streets on this blog.

London China Town

Year of the Horse

Something highly innovative you will never see the like of anywhere else! Hazle Ceramics like to extend the boundaries of what they create and Hazle has always wanted a series of Chinese shops. Many stores in Central London’s Chinatown are located in period buildings so these ceramics are perfect to portray them. Another fun twist is relating each painted theme to one of the 12 zodiac animals that the Chinese feature in turn when celebrating their New Year. More…

We have revised our sister site Hazle Ceramics Guide to give it a fresh, new look and updated or added content. There is a feast of information! The Orientation Guide under Shapes lists every Nation of Shopkeepers building made. Our banner photo is a view of Windsor Castle from the Thames, as there are six Hazle Ceramics models from Windsor. Marilyn and Chris took a boat ride to get this photo! More…
