Portmeirion

Founded in 1960 by pottery designer Susan Williams-Ellis and inspired by the Italian styled Portmeirion Village in North Wales. Portmeirion Pottery is famous for creating collections that are not only beautiful but also functional and affordable.

Always at the forefront of contemporary design, Susan Williams-Ellis was renowned for her originality in both design and manufacturing techniques. This has led to her enviable reputation for producing striking shape and pattern designs that were trend setting and had worldwide appeal – designs that are now seen as iconic.

The 1970's saw the birth of what is considered by many to be Portmeirion's most recognised design, Botanic Garden. Launched in 1972, Botanic Garden was uniquely different - inspired by a serendipitous find of antique botanical books, and with a variety of individual floral decorations, it encapsulated the new mood for casual dining, dispensing with the old formalities and bringing a new design philosophy to the market place. It became an instant success and has become a classic of British design and hailed as the world's most popular casual tableware design.

Recognising the expertise of the area, the earthenware continues to be made at Portmeirion's factory in Stoke-on-Trent and has amassed a worldwide following and an ardent fan base.
