About Old Tupton Ware
Made by skilled craftsmen using designs first created in the UK in 2002 in the village of Old Tupton, Derbyshire. Liquid clay is poured into moulds and as the clay begins to dry, the excess is taken from the middle and edges of the mould.
Once set, a turner removes any marks and seam lines to ensure the finished product will be smooth and unmarked. A tracer then draws on the unique pattern. This is then outlined in soft clay using a tool similar to an icing bag. After hand painting, glazing and eight hours in the kiln, the Tuptonware pottery is ready for sale.
