Meet the maker...
I'm Quil, the designer maker at Love & Lovelier
Ceramics. I live (and make) in Llantwit Fardre, South Wales. I have been designing and selling my makings since 2011, mostly wholesale to gift shops and tourist attractions across Wales, but also online and in person at craft fairs. Love & Lovelier is all about gifting - helping people find that perfect gift, which I know can be a tough task.
Describe your business in three words...
Quirky, Welsh, Wordy
Name three things that inspire you
Humorous quotes - I especially like Winston Churchill. He knew how to weather a storm.
Awkward custom requests - these make me think differently about how to create something new, and often give rise to something fantastic.
Meeting other makers - there's a wealth of talent out there, and we all do things a bit differently. It's brilliant to talk to others and learn from each other.
Chocolate, feather duvets, knowing the exact time
Blue cheese, dishonesty, slapstick humour
