Introduction to Old Tupton Ware

Old Tupton Ware Giftware is a Ceramic Pottery Brand with roots from the small village of Old Tupton, Derbyshire, England.  Two Friends decided to learn all they could about Ceramics and start their own Brand back in 2001.  Since then Old Tupton Ware has grown to become a British Brand known for Beautiful decorations and teaming up with local artists to create unique and original pottery.

What makes Tupton Ware Stand out is the intricate details, Tube line, and hand-painted products.   Only the best artisans can create the pottery and a lengthy training process is required for new applicants.  Earthenware Clay is used to creating the ceramics homeware and fired in the kiln at above 1000°c, then artists draw on the designs, Tube line is the process,  a bag filled with wet clay is carefully applied to the pottery much like icing a cake.  Another fire in the kiln and the vases and honey pots are hand-painted and glazed, before the final fire.  Tupton Ware is ready for sale.
