The process of slip casting is a long one! To make Earthenware pottery, liquid clay is hand poured into moulds, cut out, dried to leather-hard, sponged and fettled and then fired to biscuit before it is ready to decorate.
We make around 11,000 items of our own earthenware pottery each year, using a slip casting process - the pottery is then either used as biscuit-ware (blanks) in our studios for customers to paint, themselves or decorated by our own production team to sell in the Gift Barn.
The strawberry range is probably our most popular design - it is used to serve our award winning Cream Teas in the Courtyard Café - and is available to buy from our
Gift Barn or online shop.
