More miniature pottery by Sue Dix

Miniature pottery by Sue Dix

1:12 scale chamber pots by Sue Dix

I'm back in Canada, after a wonderful trip!  One of the boxes waiting for me was a custom order by American potter Sue Dix, whose work really pleases me.  She makes lovely, rustic pieces suitable for earlier period scenes, and I had ordered a number of her regular pieces.  I had also asked her to make me some chamber pots, as it's hard to find ones that look appropriate for pre mid-18th century scenes.

These were the reference photos I sent her of late 17th century chamber pots:

I think she did a brilliant job, and I now have four beautiful little chamber pots!  (I notice she has a few up for sale in her Etsy store, Suramics, right now, and I know she's always happy to make custom orders :))  Thank you, Sue!


  1. Thank you for sharing, I just hopped over and picked up 2 pieces from her shop!

  2. Oh, I'm so glad you like her work! I love being able to buy directly from the artisan, and these little pieces are just perfect for a rustic or early setting ...

  3. As ever, Nina, you are a great source of knowledge when it comes to mini artisans, thanks for the link!

    And glad you had a good time in Blighty, it certainly looked fun!

  4. These are so cute and the detail is amazing. But I don't see how you had the patience to make them all! I would go crazy having to make that many miniature pots.

  5. I'm headed to Halifax in early October-I'm wondering if anyone knows of dollhouse or miniature shops in the area? Thanks!

  6. Hi, Dooger Cat! There are, sadly, no mini or dollhouse shops in Nova Scotia :( There's a great group in Dartmouth, and if your visit coincides with one of their meetings, that might be lovely. I'll try to look out their contact info.
