The Alex Shimwell Small vase I purchased recently arrived as always in great condition. A beautiful piece in this case small is beautiful. This little gem will be treasured in my collection

Hello Mike,

Its arrived and I am totally thrilled. I was really impressed with what was an absolute master class in packaging  but the jug itself is even better than I expected.

The two stunning Little Elspeth Owen Bowls came in top order. Small is Beautiful. Well packed as always. As is with a lot of collectors of studio pottery some of the smaller pots can be more difficult to pot than larger pots. Stunning Best Regards Mark Anthony Nuttall

The teapots are fabulous, even better in real life than the photographs (although photographs on your website are excellent) – they have now joined the previous Peter Meanley teapot I purchased from you a while back – I do so love his quirky work.
Thank you for packaging them so well, as a purchaser it is always nerve wracking knowing that delicate articles are going to be subject to the parcel post but I know that I do not have to worry when purchasing from your website.
Once again it has been a pleasure doing business with you

The packaging protected it perfectly during its journey to me.

I am delighted with my bowl, sincere thanks. It is somewhat difficult viewing a three dimensional living object in two dimensional flat images, but this is where your excellent photography described it perfectly.

It  is wonderful and has an excellent presence, I am very happy indeed, thank you again. I shall look forward to the returning natural light tomorrow when I can hold and look at it again. I shall also take time to look further and keep an eye on your website. I think that I added myself to your mailing list...

Thank you again, for the wonderful pot, for your excellent website, and for your professional and perfect service.

Dear Mike, Just to let you know that the pot has arrived safely. Thank you so much for packing it so well and sending it so promptly.

The pot is as lovely as I anticipated and I am looking forward to it finding it's place in my house. The question is whether it will  make friends with my other Elspeth Owen or whether they will prefer to be seperated. Exciting stuff.

All best wishes,

Thomas, Caerdydd, Wales

Thank you for doing such a fine job of packing the Chris Carter Small Arrow Form. It arrived safely yesterday and now makes my house even more wonderful.

Eric, Auckland, New Zealand

Thanks for your excellent service. The John Leach vase arrived today well packed and in perfect condition. It's gorgeous!

Best wishes

The Tea Bowl arrived this morning, safe and sound, and you are quite right - it really is a beauty. You probably know that I love tea bowls and this is as good an example as one can find. I really am delighted with it. It is now sitting on a shelf next to the Mike Dodd tea bowl which I bought from you. They go well together.

Mike, Swindon

I'm so very happy with the vessel from Carolyn Genders! It arrived very well packed and so fast. Thank you so much for such a smooth transaction. International shipping was very reasonable. I will purchase from you again :)

The Ian Gregory pottery Dresser arrived safe and sound, we really like the piece and it is the best piece of Ian's pottery we have and we love the workmanship and glaze effects. I hope to buy from you again in the near future.

Peter, Wolverhampton

Thank you for sending the sculpture so quickly, it arrived today. It is really lovely and compliments a bridge we already have from Bryan Newman. 

Joanna, Cambridge

Bowl arrived safely - I'm delighted with it. Appreciate the quick delivery and double box packaging. Finally just to say I think your prices are some of the most reasonable I've come across for a gallery selling studio ceramics of this quality.

Niall, Bridport. Dorset

Thank You for sending my purchase of the Geoffrey Swindell bowl so quickly - it arrived today. It's just as beautiful in real life as in the pictures on your website and is now sitting proudly in my collection of modern ceramics. Many thanks again.

Martin, Greater Manchester

9A Hove Place is the humble and heartwarming home of Mike and Tamar. Offering ceramic works by some of the country’s leading established ceramic artists and curated by Mike’s incredible knowledge and passion and greeted with warmth by Tamar. Whether you are starting a collection or adding more one off pieces to further your collection this or the MIAR arts website must be a place to visit. I bought my first Charles Bound piece here and now I want more……….

Dion Salvador Lloyd, Brighton

The bowls safely arrived thanks to your professional double boxing. They are both fantastic pieces of work. The Robert Cooper tea bowl with its incorporation of a recycled fractured inner bowl wrapped and held together with an extruded like outer case being particularly intriguing.

Clive, Wellingborough, England

Thank you so much for the well packaged and fabulous Elspeth Owen - it arrived safe and sound today. I love the works you show and feeling very confident when I buy from you.

Jacqueline, Surrey

The jug arrived this morning expertly packed-thank you.
I am delighted with the jug- we have been collecting and using Sarah Waltons pots since 1976 and it is rare to see her domestic pots these days as she concentrates on birdbaths and sculptures now.
I was not aware of your website but I will be a regular visitor from now on.

Paul, Newport, Wales

Mike and Tamar full-fill my dream of a pottery heaven! Having a passion for contemporary pottery, I could not have had a better place to go, to update my forever growing collection.

They are lovely people to do business with, always warm friendly and helpful and without a doubt very skilled in their trade. I love the personal connection they have with the potters and feel that it adds to the insight and understanding of the pieces I fall in love with and want to talk about.

Ann Gunn Moe Levette, London, England

Mike Daniels’s website has everything: first-class ceramics one can’t get anywhere else; realistic prices; excellent pictures (and enough of them); an expert, reliable, friendly proprietor who cares about his customers, communicates well, and fulfils orders promptly.

My collection would be much the poorer without him. Exemplary! Keep up the good work, Mike! 

Peter Thornton, Newcastle upon Tyne, England

Hi Mike, just wanted to say thank you for the mugs they are amazing.

Thank you also for the fantastic service, all the best.

Jamie, Toronto, Canada

The mugs arrived today and are looking fantastic. The packing was excellent too. Can't go wrong with double boxing.

We actually sell Walter Keelers where I work but they're all larger pieces and I can't afford any of them. It's wonderful to finally own a piece of his artwork.

Thanks very much,

Kind Regards,

Angus, Edingburgh, Scotland
