Cotswold Characters
Unique, high quality hand sculpted models made in polymer clay.

My names Laura Barton and I live in the Cotswolds with my husband Luke. In 2012 I started planning our wedding and when it came to a cake topper for our wedding cake I started to browse the internet for a unique cake topper that we could cherish forever, long after the big day had passed. Whilst browsing around I realised that I could possibly try my hand at making my own. I was certainly artistic enough. Art was pretty much the only thing I was really good at in my school years. Anything creative – painting, drawing, pottery and card making, I loved it! So I started to look around at Polymer clay and decided to order myself some. I bought some clay modelling books and as I started to practice with it I realised I was pretty good at it and soon enough I started getting a lot of interest from friends and family to make them wedding and birthday toppers. Since then my Cotswold character page on Facebook has become very popular! So popular I decided to set up a website so that more people can have a look at my clay characters and possibly purchase one of their own that they can keep forever! It has now extended to Instagram, YouTube and Twitter to share my unique creations with the world! I have been interviewed by BBC Radio Gloucestershire and had requests from celebrities. When I started out I had no idea my creations would become so popular! As you can see from photo’s of my polymer clay creations, attention to detail is very important to me. The tiniest details can make all the difference to those that commission me to sculpt their loved ones in clay. I use only the highest quality materials including real Swarovski crystals when making wedding toppers. I pride myself on creating one of a kind high quality keepsakes for people to look at for years to come.
