Burslem Pottery.

Burslem Pottery, in its present form. Established in 2006. Acquiring the moulds and design rights of Cobridge Stoneware. A pottery recently closed down. That had been a company within the Moorcroft group of companies.

Including the designs aqcquired. The Grotesque Birds designs.  Designed by Andew Hull. Inspired by the designs of Martin Brothers.

The new owner Tracy Bently. Who had worked for Moorcroft and Cobridge Stoneware. Well known by the collectors of Moorcroft and Cobridge Stoneware. And continues produce pottery in the Cobridge Stoneware style. Including the Grotesque Birds.

The process to produce one of the Grotesque Birds has several stages. Including being fired at a very high temperature.  Each one is made from mould castings. Pieced together using a slip mixture to complete the figure. The seams from the moulds need to cleaned off. A process that can take hours to complete. After this process the figure is left to dry. Before it is fired for the first time.

It must be completely dry, if not, it may crack during that firing. Which is at a very high temperature.

After the first firing it is ready to be decorated. Hand painted with coloured oxide glazes. That change colour during the second and final firing.

A process that takes a total of five to six working days to complete.

Due to the hand painting process. No two Grotesque Birds are identical.
