Choose the perfect china

All our china is made from clay and kiln-fired for durability. Except for pieces with special trims, everything is dishwasher safe. Below are a few options to consider when choosing your perfect china.

EarthenwareStrong and practical, perfect for everyday. Its cream colour and low firing temperatures allow for designed pieces.
StonewareTougher than earthenware and chip resistant. Ideal for heavy use and can often go into the oven to temperatures of up to 250°C.
TerracottaUses a clay with a rich body colour giving the characteristic base colour, and has a low glaze firing allowing bright coloured glazes. Porous body allows for good thermal expansion and contraction properties making it an ideal body for cookware such as tagines and roasters.
PorcelainDelicate yet strong. Carefully selected clays give whiteness and translucency. It can often go from oven to table.
Fine china The synthetic bone ash used in fine china makes it a more affordable alternative to bone china whilst maintaining the benefits - strength, translucency & delicacy.
Bone china Bone china is made from 40% bone ash. This makes strong yet thin and delicate pieces which are microwave, dishwasher* and oven safe making each piece ideal for everyday use, not just formal.
*Unless product has metallic details - always check individual item for specific care instructions

Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality This butter dish was poor quality with an ill fitting lid. It is not cheap and the lid should fit. The cups and saucers also do not fit v well and wobble on the saucers. I think the design is great but the production quality is poor 24 March 2015
