The Johnson Brothers started making ceramics in Stoke-on-Trent in 1882. Now the fourth and fifth generation of that family have formed 1882 Ltd to champion innovative ceramic designers and celebrate the rebirth of the British ceramic industry. Max Lamb's bone china tableware plays with ideas of form and texture. The pieces are cast from moulds carved by hand using traditional stone-mason tools. The interiors are glazed so that they can hold water, but the paper-white exterior is left raw.

Formed in 2011 by Emily Johnson with her father Christopher, the design-led ceramics brand 1882 Ltd takes its name from the year that four of their ancestors (Alfred, Frederick, Henry and Robert) formed the pottery firm Johnson Brothers in Stoke-on-Trent.Visit Designer Page
