Doreen Gardner and Tony Smither have been in business since 1980, concentrating on the design and manufacture of sculptural birds and beasts for the home and garden. 

All of the ceramic pieces are frostproof stoneware so that all of their products can be safely used in the garden all year round.

Doreen & Tony work predominantly in ceramics, using most of the manufacturing processes available. These include coiling, press moulding, slip casting, throwing, extruding, and slab building. On many pieces two or more techniques are employed. 

Recently some sculptures have been produced in cold-cast bronze resin and foundry bronze.
