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.
|Earthenware||Strong and practical, perfect for everyday. Its cream colour and low firing temperatures allow for designed pieces.|
|Stoneware||Tougher than earthenware and chip resistant. Ideal for heavy use and can often go into the oven to temperatures of up to 250°C.|
|Terracotta||Uses 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.|
|Porcelain||Delicate 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 and 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.|

Founder and pottery designer Susan Williams-Ellis and her husband, Euan Cooper-Willis, opened the door to Portmeirion Pottery in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent in 1960. Susan's father was Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, the architect and creator of Portmeirion Village in North Wales and she spent her childhood and youth socialising with and being taught by creative talents such as Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland. Her innate feeling for shape, form and pattern flourished. The opportunity to use those skills came along when her father asked her to create ceramics for the gift shop at Portmeirion Village. Over the coming years and after opening Portmeirion Pottery, Susan designed both shape and surface pattern which, in the 1960s, was considered quite unique. Her innovative designs put Portmeirion on the map and today the pottery continues to move with the ever-changing fashion and trends, but always with the same philosophy: to make beautiful high-quality products with timeless style.
