Daft cats (and sometimes dogs), painted nicely on fancy china. Designed with love in Worthing and made with passion in the potteries of Stoke-on-Trent, Catnap was founded by Suzie Patrick, an illustrator and animal lover.

After graduating with a degree in Illustration in 2012 I got a job in London, then after a few years establishing myself in the working world I started hand-painting cat designs on pottery for fun. I received quite a few requests for bespoke designs and it became clear to me that my designs were popular. I longed to turn them into a range of products and in 2018, after 6 years of balancing different jobs and continuing to satisfy the demand for bespoke ceramics I began. I worked on a range of designs and went to meet with the skilled screen printers and Fine Bone China producers of Stoke-on-Trent about making my ideas a reality. Catnap was launched in early 2019 and has since weathered a pandemic and a move to the South Coast, I haven’t looked back!
I can be found selling Catnap products at market stalls in London and the South Coast, packing and shipping orders across the U.K. and internationally and working on new designs from my Worthing based studio.
