Description

A dark figure crawling with green glaze, rare beasts, factories and pollution.  The world will be fine, we are poisoning ourselves.

Royal Worcester China Figures 

Our founder Chris Chalkley was a ceramics and glass marketeer back in the day.  He was in a unique position to see the full impact of globalisation when his suppliers in the potteries went bankrupt in the 80’s and 90’s.  Hating to see anything go to waste and realising what a precious part of our heritage was being destroyed he salvaged, kilns, equipment and unused transfers.

Amongst his acquisitions during this time were around fifty Royal Worcester bone china figurines.  These pieces are difficult to decorate in the Stokes Croft style so are only attempted when an artist has developed a strong idea and the skills to apply it.

The fascinating story of how and why these pieces exist, their incongruous beauty and the individual expression of the artist are the reason that they are the jewel in the Stokes Croft crown. 

The Designer

Bev Milward is an established maker working in porcelain. She is interested in the longevity and sentimentality of ceramics, how they infiltrate our lives and can be used as a tool for communication long after leaving the maker.

Her distinctive landscape collaged pieces have a strong narrative in common with her porcelain work. Her makers mark is a key which is featured on the front of the current British Studio pottery dictionary.
