NEW TABLEWARE COLLECTION PREVIEW
BONE CHINA FROM STOKE ON TRENT
Derelict Bottle kiln in Longton
Moulds on the casting bench ready for slipcasting.
It's such a lovely smooth, luxurious material, and so robust and durable when fired, allowing for a thin cast thickness which helps with the translucent qualities.

Fantastic to see my new moulds on the benches, it's been a long time since I worked directly with UK factories, the last production I had was with Park Rose and Hornsea factories up in Yorkshire, making earthenware tableware ranges for me with matt silk glazes, which retailed at Heals, The Conran Shop and Liberty's.
Preview of new bone china work. Still a few details to finalise for the new range and some development to do for another range to sit with this before I launch the collection fully.
