Supplier Spotlight - Hannah Turner Ceramics

Hannah Turner specialises in creating sculptural creatures and table ware mostly featuring birds, fish and domestic animals. Humour is evident in her work as she produces quirky pieces that can be used every day to add a sense of fun to meal times. Her wonderful peacock designs feature on mugs, jugs, plates and teapots and would add whimsy to the breakfast or tea table. 

The Castle Howard Estate is home to an ostentation of peacocks who can often be seen strutting along the drive and in the stable courtyard as well as the wider grounds. These impressive birds are native to India subcontinent, and were later introduced into Europe, where they would have caught the eye of wealthy travellers on the grand Tour. Peacocks were kept in menageries and introduced onto large estates where they are perfectly suited to a parkland environment loving our low trees, farmland and woods. They roost in the lower branches of trees on a night and provide some unexpected surprises for some of our visitors and staff as on a morning they silently glide back down to earth to forage for food. 

In the Great Hall here at Castle Howard you will find a wonderful painting of a peacock in the Dome where one of the four elements - air, painted by Giovanni Pellegrini between 1709 and 1712 is depicted holding a spectacular peacock. Currently around six peacocks choose the Castle Howard Estate as home and during the breeding season broadcast their presence around the Courtyard, where our Farm Shop will supply you with eggs, artisan bread as well as delicious cakes and biscuits to grace Hannah's quirky ceramics that you will find for sale in our House Gift Shop.
