What they are saying
I'm always searching for pet lover gifts that are not only unique but also well made with plenty of attention to detail. While riding a web wave the other day, I stumbled upon the Blue Witch Ceramics website and my mouse darn near skipped-a-click! But are their products as good as they look?
Blue Witch Ceramics Dane mug
The Blue Witch website is a virtual goldmine of collectibles featuring the most adorable dogs, cats and wild animals lovingly crafted into salt and pepper shakers, coin banks, key chains, mugs and more.
I opened the box from Blue Witch with great anticipation while steeling myself to be greeted with just another run-of-the-mill, nothing to write home about, kind of mug. It's difficult to put into words my reaction when I pulled out the most beautiful, well-made, 3D dog mug I have ever held in my hands.
Blue Witch Giraffe salt & pepper shakers The Dane on the mug not only looks exactly like our own gentle giant, the little guy has so much personality I wouldn't be at all surprised if one day he simply walks off of the cup in his eagerness to play fetch and run with the big dogs!
This well-made ceramic work of art is created with painstaking attention to detail by the artist who hand painted him. Such a happy little face to greet me with my morning coffee and inspire me as I compose my posts; or perhaps I'll entrust him with the very important duty of holding and guarding my treasured art brushes.
Blue Witch Ceramics surpassed my expectations and passed my test with flying colors! I encourage everyone to visit their website and browse their catalogue of ceramic gems.: PetSecretShopper.com
Let me introduce you to a very unique site called Bluewitchceramics.com. In December of 2010 I did a review of their French Bull Dog Salt and Pepper Shakers. If you would like to read it please click here. Because I enjoyed the first review so well, I contacted them again to see if they would like to participate in another review. They kindly agreed and offered to send me an item of my choice to review. But, before I start telling you all about it, lets back track a little and tell you about their company.
Bluewitchceramics.com is a family run and owned business, dedicated to providing hand crafted collectible pieces of art work to their customers. Art Schuller and sister- in- law Pomm Bunyakhet Madame Pomm) have ran this excellent business since 2007. Madame Pomm is a gifted artist that puts her creativity and talent into each piece, along with some help from other talented artists as well. She started out by making mugs and has expanded to making Salt & Pepper Shakers, Picture Holders, Banks, Key Chains, Ornaments, and Magnets. The majority of her creative pieces include dogs in all different breeds and colors. If you are shopping for mugs, she not only offers a wide variety of dog breeds, but also other animals, aquatic life, flowers, sports and more.
If you are a dog lover, and I am sure there are plenty of you out there, then this is definitely a site you will want to check out! I tried to review the Shiatsu Salt and Pepper Shakers, but they were currently out of stock, so I then decided upon a bank. Next, I had to choose exactly which one to review, but it was so hard since everything is basically equally as eye catching as the next. Each piece has it's very own personality, this is because each piece is hand painted. so no one piece is the same. They are definitely something that you will come across in just any old store, which makes them even more unique.
I really liked the Bull Terrior Bank -Tiger Decorated, but I couldn't resist the BULL DOG BANK RED COLLAR. My older sister use to always have bull dogs when we were growing up, and I just always thought they were an interesting breed. With their short stubby legs and droopy faces how could you resist them! The Bull Dog Bank arrived in pristine condition. I immediately noticed all of the detail that was put into this artistic piece of art work: Mizz Review Lady-Mommy Review
I just received two chicken and two camel mugs and they are absolutely beautiful. I also have a boxer mug you made and I am convinced coffee tastes better in it. Thank you so much. I greatly admire your artistic skill. Since drinking coffee is the first thing we do in the morning, your mugs help us start the day with a smile. Many thanks, Mimi
I just received the 2 dog mugs I ordered from you and I LOVE THEM. I am referring you to everyone who loves dogs and would like mugs! Thank you so very much! I am impressed with every aspect of your company! I spoke with Customer Service on the phone once too and they were great! Must be a family member. You are all so nice and sweet. Thank you, I will be a returning customer. Happy Holidays! Andrea

I just wanted to drop a note and tell you that your dog items are absolutely beautiful. They are full of so much character, and it is easy to tell they're well made. I've really enjoyed browsing your website. Before I found your site I saw the figurines on Ebay. I'm not even a Chinese Crested or Afghan Hound owner, but the figurines were so nice that I was tempted to buy them anyway! I will definitely purchase some figurines before the year is through. Very nice work, Jennifer
I got my bull terrier and dachshund piggy banks and they are so pretty, especially the bull terrier, since he looks just like the dog that I have. Very fast shipping! You guys have a great company that makes very high quality things. Thank you very much. Monika, Jackson Heights, New York
It arrived today & i love it! Looks just like my bullie. Thanks!! Lisa Plano, Tx
I bought an elephant mug by Blue Witch many years ago at a gift shop in Accra, Ghana, and packed it away for safety as I was traveling a lot in those days. I just came across it while unpacking in my new house. This is an exquisite mug -- beautifully made and beautifully painted. Mine has ears with white tips, and a little baby elephant on the other side. I consider this mug a piece of art and well worth the price. Elma Shaw
