About our work and where to find it

Glorious Mud started life as collaboration between a couple of ceramic artists with many years of experience between us. We started doing craft fairs together, and got chatting about how to turn our passion for clay into a something more than throwing pots in our small studios.

Launched in November 2014, it has grown from an idea to a small business with distributors all over the country. It has been fun, hard work, and we have learnt a lot. The best bit (apart from the sales) is watching peoples faces and listening to your comments when you come across our work for the first time.

Made by a Human Being

Everything from the design to the prototyping, throwing, casting, decorating and firing is done by a person, not a machine. Whilst we don't have anything against mass production, there is something about a handmade piece of pottery that makes it special, so we aim to keep it this way.

Our customer service is also by a human being, not a computerized ordering system. We will correspond with you by email, and make sure you are happy with your order, and possible delivery dates, and then make it (unless it is a stock item), pack it and dispatch it to you.It isn't as quick as what you may be used to from internet shopping, but we do occasionally surprise ourselves by having the item you want in stock, so please ask.

Made in England 

All our work is designed and made in England, using English ingredients and components wherever possible. We are passionate about British ceramics, and keeping our skills alive, and Glorious Mud will contribute to that aim. Our work is cast in bone china, thrown in porcelain, and rolled in earthenware. It is mostly high fired up to 1300 degrees centigrade,as many as four times. This ensures it is tough, durable and dishwasher proof. 

Where to find us

Our products are now stocked in shops around the country -see the list below.You can of course buy them from the website or by emailing us too. We like meeting our customers and will be exhibiting at craft fairs in the Summer and Autumn. We have already started applying for craft fairs and will be back at Crowthorne, Wisley, Country Living and Landmark in the Autumn. We will confirm these nearer the time.
In the Summer we will be at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show for the first time. We will also attend our local Summer fairs in May (Richmond) and July (Barnes) as well as the Lambeth County Fair in Brockwell Park, Brixton, and Surbiton Festival in September.
