Pure Public Relations is delighted to welcome Burleigh Pottery to its interiors + design portfolio
Burleigh has a rich and intricate history, beginning and remaining in Stoke-on-Trent, the home of English pottery. The British brand prides itself on a sustained use of time-honoured manufacturing processes at Middleport Pottery, its home since 1889. The last Pottery of its kind in many respects, Burleigh bears a binding commitment to the tradition and specificity of its craft.
Last month, the Pure Public Relations Interiors Team had the pleasure of visiting Middleport Pottery and gaining a fascinating insight into the long-standing manufacturing methods, the illustrious history of the brand and the atmosphere in the original Victorian buildings.
Burleigh is the only pottery in the world to decorate its wares using tissue transfer printing. The decorating method dates back over 250 years, an art one can expect to master in no less than five years. There are now just 11 craftspeople in the world who have the precise skills needed to continue Burleigh’s decorative lineage. Long-established for its classic blue and white patterns, Burleigh has expanded its colourway offering, with tissue printed patterns in pink, plum, red, mulberry, grey, green and contemporary black.
With rare expertise, honourable craftsmanship and unrivalled quality, Burleigh Pottery has become an icon in both the design and consumer landscapes. By combining a knowledge of colour trends and a boundless trust in traditional artistry, Burleigh has paved the way for its narrative to continue to be told today.
Burleigh ware is available from an array of some of the world’s leading retailers and is the choice of a selection of prestigious restaurants, including Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, Liberty, The Ned, Soho House Group and Chiltern FireHouse.
