PonkyWots is an independant store established in August 2020, creating all things bright, colourful and full of fun. PonkyWots are quirky and colourful hand-made pottery, with a focus on head planters, plant pots with faces / face pots.
All PonkyWots are hand-made with love, by me, Jade Groves.
I recently graduated from the Cambridge School of Art with a first degree honours in illustration and animation. I love stop-motion animation, in which I create puppets (small figures like Wallace and Gromit etc) to create a moving animation. This is where PonkyWots stemmed from! I love sculpting faces and creating characters and I wanted another outlet to do so. Over summer 2019 I worked at a summer school, the hours were all over the place and I needed something to fill the gaps, so I got some clay and began make little egg cup characters.I am hoping that in the future I can combine my animation skills within PonkyWots!
If you would like to see more of my illustration/animation work feel free to check out my animation instagram @groveyanimation or my website jadegrovesanimation.myportfolio.com
I live in Margate in Kent (UK) and I'm very fortunate to make the pots in my little workshop in my garden!
I am proud to be from a working class background and I am very proud of my accomplishments so far in my pottery journey! Before I started PonkyWots I had many jobs that definitely were not for me, I did paper rounds, I was a maid, a bartender, and also worked in many various retail jobs to stay afloat (too many to count lol). I bought a bag of clay and never looked back! I am so happy to now be spending every day doing a creative job that I love and suits me and my personality. I feel extremely fortunate and blessed to be where I am right now, which is all down to you!
Thank you to every one of you who supports me, it makes a huge difference and I am eternally grateful.
