Our New Stovetop Goddess.

Tati Dennehy is an incredibly talented artist, who has become a great friend of ours. Her studio is tucked away on a beautiful spot of land on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, which is just a short drive away from our Devon workshop. Her amazing sculptures are all hand-built with coils of clay, and her artwork celebrates the human body in its many forms, with a particular focus on our connection with nature.

Our new stovetop goddesses are a celebration of our friendship, where Tati’s astounding level of creativity has intertwined with our manufacturing expertise to create a set of beautiful and functional works of art! They are available to purchase through our website here, and you can choose between a brass stovetop goddess, or one that’s made from cast iron.

Tati’s magnificent artwork has now been immortalised in these gorgeous ladies, which have been designed to transform your Hobbit stove or Little Range into a centre of well-being! Simply mix some water and a few drops of essential oils into the dish, before placing your goddess on top of your small wood burning stove. As the flames flicker away inside your tiny wood burner, the essential oils will begin to evaporate, leaving you with a beautifully-scented room!

Here you can see her pictured on top of Glastonbury Tor, holding some beautiful hand-blended incense from Star Child. She looks fabulous out in the garden, and you can also use the dish as an incense holder, or as a space for a wax melt or tea light! 

Aside from the functionality of these truly special pieces, their content expression is enough to evoke a calm, uplifted feeling of happiness and joy! Tati has managed to create a design that radiates serenity, whilst simultaneously displaying an unapologetic reverence for the female body. The goddesses are grounded, humble yet powerful, and with a beautifully modest sense of pride.

Each stovetop goddess loves being cared for, so please do not leave her unattended on the top of your wood burner! Please note that when being used on the stovetop, the dish is only suitable for essential oils and water, or wax melts. If you would like to light a candle or some incense before placing it in the dish, then please refrain from doing this whilst the figure is on top of your Hobbit stove or Little Range. If you do leave her outside in the garden, then please know that she may oxidise over time.

If you would like to find out more about Tati, or if you would like to see the rest of her work, then make sure you visit her website! Tati draws on a mix of imagery from her life, and her work is influenced by the surrounding countryside, her travels, her friends, and her dreams.

Tati also runs weekly classes and one-off weekend workshops from the studio in her garden, covering nearly all aspects of ceramic sculpture and pottery. Her classes are open to all levels of ability, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere that’s accompanied with cups of tea and cake! Teaching others has developed Tati’s enthusiasm for pottery even more over the years, and she thoroughly enjoys watching people’s creativity flourish through the medium of clay!

Our Hobbit Stove Has Been Fitted!

"We had a Hobbit stove fitted this week by Alex Reay from Flues and Fires, and I just wanted to get in touch to say it is AMAZING and we love it! We have a lovely cast iron tiled fireplace which I was desperate not to lose when we installed a small wood burning stove, but until I found the Hobbit on Google, everyone told me it would be impossible to keep the fire surround. The Hobbit is perfect - not only does it fit very snugly, but it looks fantastic and the blue door complements the tiles very nicely. We are sitting enjoying a fire now and absolutely loving it! Thanks for creating such an amazing product."

The Best Stove Ever!

"It’s the best stove ever! It’s easy to light, very efficient, burns anthracite and stays in overnight (ours has been in for three weeks now). It even keeps a kettle of water at the ready for a cuppa! What more can I say, we love it! Just the thing to make our Yorkshire home cosy, and the cat loves it too!"

First Small Stove Installation

Was looking for a small stove for my first self-install. Found Mark very helpful. Knowledgeable, friendly service. Stove burns well and generates lots more heat than the previous open fire. What is not to like?

A Huge Thank You!

"Dear Mark and Gill, a huge thank you for designing and making the Hobbit stove! We had two different London-based fireplace companies tell us that we simply had to knock out the old cast iron and tile fireplace to fit in a woodburning stove, and that there was no other option! Then we found you online. We are delighted with our little Hobbit, which swallows up logs and kicks out a good amount of heat. Perfect for the winter! I will also be writing to the London-based fireplace companies to put the Hobbit on their radar. Best wishes."

It's Brilliant!

"Hi Mark, here's a photo of the Hobbit installed in my Yorkist grate. It’s brilliant! It also throws out a lot more heat than the grate did."

The Little Hobbit Has Stepped Up To The Challenge!

"We just wanted to say how impressed and how much of a life saver our little Hobbit has been! It was fitted a few months ago in our holiday home in Rhu, Scotland, which is a large open plan conversion in a Victorian house. This weekend our boiler decided it was not going to play ball. The little Hobbit has stepped up to the challenge, providing heat to a very large area, about twenty eight foot by twenty four foot with a high ceiling of about eighteen foot, keeping the room reasonably warm, warm enough for us not to use cardigans!”

Very Pleased With Our Hobbit!

"We are very pleased with the stove and think it looks great! We restored our fireplace (it was hidden under plaster!) and the whole look is better than we hoped!"

Our Pride And Joy!

"What a fantastic fireplace with the beautiful Hobbit stove. It fits perfectly into the small space and throws out a lot of heat. Here's a photo of our little stove, now our pride and joy and much admired by all who see and feel the warmth."

"Just to bid you all a Happy New Year and to say how much we’re enjoying having our Hobbit stove! It was easy to fit with the help of your excellent ‘how to’ videos and we’re just awaiting our inspection by building control for the certification. The Hobbit has fitted neatly into the hearth vacated by the old gas back boiler (with a little cosmetic rendering) and never ceases to surprise us how much heat it can deliver to the point that the new condenser boiler is having an easy life, thereby saving us on gas bills too! Everyone loves having a ‘real fire’ in the living room."
