Stoke-on-Trent

Ceramics, museums, Clarice Cliff

Bottle ovens at the Gladstone Pottery Museum, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, England.

The world’s ceramics capital, known as The Potteries, Stoke-on Trent is home to great names including World of Wedgwood, Emma Bridgewater, the Spode Works Visitor Centre and the Moorcroft Heritage Visitor Centre, to name just a few.

Clarice Cliff, was one of Stoke’s star and the 1920s period drama The Colour Room is based on the life of the legendary ceramic artist.

For an overview visit The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery showcasing collections and displays of Staffordshire ceramics, fine and decorative arts and the golden treasures of the The Staffordshire Hoard.

Visit the museums and visitor centres and even make something at the Gladstone Pottery Museum, the only remaining complete pottery. See demonstrations and make your own bone china flower, throw a pot or decorate a piece. I still have the piece I created when I visited – it’s a fun thing to do.
