Handmade Ceramic Soap Dishes

You’ve got the soap, now here’s the dish. At last, you can reverentially place your solid soap on its own little shrine to hygiene. No plastic involved, just what you’ve been praying for!

....More soap dishes coming soon! Please keep checking back for a new crop of handmade soap dishes. In the meantime, please see Lichfield Studio Pottery's Etsy Shop for more ceramic goodness. Plastic-free packaging of course as this Etsy shop is also managed by ABP!


These soap dishes, including the octagons and shells, are approximately 10.5cm to 11cm in diameter, but every dish differs, so there can be very slight variations in size. The oval soap dishes are smaller than the rest, approx 10cm x 7.5cm, which will neatly fit half a bar of soap. The rectangles are also smaller, at 12cm x 7cm. Any major variation in size is noted in the list above. Hopefully, these dimensions will help you work out if these soap dishes are a perfect fit for your bathroom or kitchen.


Get your hands on these one-of-a-kind, beautiful ceramic soap dishes, handmade by my very own mother. The flower design on some of the soap dishes is produced using a piece of vintage crocheted lace which was owned by my nan (and possibly even made by her!) Creative reuse, right? Each soap dish is handmade, so like snowflakes, no two pottery soap dishes made by Maggie Derry will ever be the same, meaning you get your own uniquely designed piece!

  • Miss those plastic pump dispenser bottles for liquid handwash? Didn’t they contain soap so well? Never fear though, as solid soaps can have their own containing solution too. Step up please soap dish to take your rightful place on the sink. Isn’t life better when your handwashing tool is contained? It’s not? Well, your reckless slapdash lifestyle is not for me, my friend. I prefer to know that my soap is safely ensconced in its own little resting place, ready for when I need it, rather than slipping off to who-knows-where, as soaps are prone to do by themselves. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
