Cobridge Stoneware.

Cobridge Stoneware. Established 2008 by Hugh Edwards. Managing Director of Moorcroft. For the purpose of discovering the technique of decorating high fired stoneware with an identifiable design.

A technique that had apparently eluded a William Howson Taylor. A potter who had been selling high fired stoneware as Ruskin Pottery. However, when Howson-Taylor died, he took his own stoneware secrets to the grave.

So after nearly after two years starting in 2008. As a result of thousands of trials. In 2009 the Cobridge project achieved its first objective. To produce high-fired stoneware in an oxidised firing with an identifiable design.

Already having many talented ceramic designers working with Moorcroft. Including Philip Gibson. Who designed this Sneyd Colliery Design Vase. The team of designers went on to produce many outstanding designs. Which were much sort out by collectors.

However in 2005, Hugh Edwards decided that the “stoneware” project did not really fit in with his business strategy with Moorcroft. Consequently sold the moulds and the business designs to ex-employees of Moorcroft.

Trading as Burslem Pottery. Using the production techniques discovered at Cobridge Stoneware. They continue to produce high fired stoneware pottery.
