designconsort emerged as an independent entity from one of England's finest art potteries, Moorcroft, established in 1897. All ground-breaking new creations require a new territory of their own to populate, without any chains from the past holding down unique new life. With a formidable team of creative designers, designconsort has a depth of handmade ceramic expertise backed up by a wealth of heritage skills from master craftsmen and women. Each piece of designconsort is made in Staffordshire, England, and is ‘tubelined' with liquid clay on utterly contemporary shapes to create a raised ceramic outline before being hand-painted with colourful metallic oxide paints, and fired twice, the second firing with a vitreous glaze. Many designs also use delicate amounts of gold and silver lustre within designconsort’s trademark abstract and geometric designs.
While all pieces are made in W. Moorcroft Ltd’s factory in Stoke-on-Trent, each piece carries on the base only the impressed brand name designconsort.
