a brief history of clay

Poetically speaking, clay is a true gift from earth and is a commodity deeply ingrained in everyday living. Used throughout time by humans to improve everyday life with objects such as plates, bowls and brinks.

With evidence that some of the earliest civilisations have used clay for sculpture and pottery dating back to 32,000 BC it is still astonishing that archaeologists are still discovering ancient sculptures and artefacts to this day.

With Staffordshire, UK dubbed as the World Capital of Ceramics we posses a long and decorated history in pottery and ceramic production. With traditional methods still used to this day by companies such as Wedgwood.
