My story so far
My aim in life is to bring joy to others by making memories in the art of gift giving. I design and hand craft thoughtful colourful one of a kind glass / ceramic pieces created in very small batches with love and full of genuine kindness.
I’m a creative mum who has decided to venture into the big wide world of being self employed for the ideal home / work balance for my family by setting up ‘Made by Miriam’ – in which involved leaving an exciting career full of geeks and technology to be surrounded by clay, colour glass samples, glass frit and glazes plus a sketch pad – a toddler of joy called Sam and a pug called Maggie.
I have always been creative since I can remember, never been far away from my colouring pencils and books. One day I was given some silver clay which I made a lovely silver pendent for my mum (a little ukulele) this gave me the bug again to ‘make things’ and provide you with creative gifts you can treasure.
Alongside my creativeness I strive to be a sustainable business. My main glass / ceramic supplier have made huge changes to become sustainable so much so even their courier have a carbon neutral commitment.
When you receive an order from me it will be gift wrapped in recycled brown paper and natural twine, all packaging is recyclable - if I have had to use bubble wrap it will have been reused from a supplier. I also I often use waste glass and powders from other projects in new products.
Nothing goes to waste in the house of Made by Miriam.
I’ve ordered 4 lots of bunting now!! They are beautiful and well worth purchasing 👍. Miriam is so helpful, and clearly cares about the pieces she creates. I would not hesitate to buy from her again x
Had SUCH a brilliant time at the workshop today. Best works Christmas do ever! thankyou!! ...... Very excited to see this bunting once it has been fired in the kiln. Had such a brilliant time at a workshop today with @made.by.miriam
I attended one of Miriam's workshops this weekend with a group of friends. This is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon and I cannot recommend enough! ......
Miriam, explains everything clearly and was very patient with 'beginner' glass makers! Just a lovely way to spend some time 😀😀😀
Beautiful unique item. The colours are stunning. Miriam was a pleasure to deal with. Quick delivery and lovely packaging. Thank you
