Traditional English Slipware

Established 1978

Hand-thrown pottery decorated with coloured clay slips was made in English country potteries from the early 17th to the mid-19th century, when styles changed as a result of the industrial revolution. Staffordshire was one of the main centres of slipware manufacture and old Staffordshire slipware has its own distinctive character.

We use traditional slipware patterns and methods adapted for modern use. Our pottery is all hand thrown in local red earthenware clay and we are happy to make individual items on request.

Commemorative plates are made to order to mark weddings, christenings, anniversaries and other special occasions.
