Welcome to Burleigh
All Made Here
Every piece of Burleigh has been MADE HERE in the town of Burslem, ‘The Mother Town’, since 1851. Every piece of Burleigh has been MADE HERE at our home, Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, since 1889. When we say MADE HERE, we mean from start to finish; our craftspeople turning raw malleable clay into to the glossy vibrant ware you see here. When we say MADE HERE, we mean crafted using skills passed down through generations of potters who worked here. Every single piece.
Provenance, Authenticity & Quality
The last of its kind, we have become a global icon of British design and manufacture; continuing to practice the time-honoured art of tissue transfer printing from hand-engraved copper rollers. A method dating back over 250 years, there are now just 12 craftspeople in the world who have this precise skill, and they are all craftspeople at Burleigh.
What defines luxury? For years ‘luxury’ has been synonymous with extravagance and great expense. At Burleigh, we've been handcrafting our wares in England since 1851, disrupting this landscape by reframing ‘luxury’ from indulgence and excess to provenance, authenticity, and quality.
