Becky's Christmas Angels take off!


Budleigh Salterton’s Fairlynch Museum  is proving to be an effective showcase for local artists.

When local ceramicist Becky Godwin-Coombs arranged for her hand-made wares to go on sale in the Museum’s newly opened craft shop she little dreamed of the good tidings that would result.

But a chance visit to Fairlynch from a buyer for the National Trust resulted in a contract to supply Christmas decorations to all NT properties in Devon. This has been expanded this year with National Trust offering these Angel Ceramics products centrally, so they are now available in more shops around the UK and on the NT Christmas web site.

Made from high-fired fine porcelain, Becky’s simple and elegant creations of angels, snowflakes, robins and many other seasonal ornaments make a beautiful addition for any tree.  

“The quality of porcelain can be seen when hanging the decorations in front of tree lights, where the translucent properties of the porcelain really shine through,” she says. “Each decoration comes in its own gift box, so they can be stored safely away until next year.”

The finishing touch: Becky at work in her studio   

These delightful decorations make great teacher’s gifts, for that Christmas dinner party gift, to jazz up that special present or just to give to someone knowing that you are supporting a local business.
