Denise O’Sullivan Ceramics is a Staffordshire based company designing and making Denise’s collections of the finest Bone China, English teaware, tableware and ceramic gifts created in her hometown of Stoke-on-Trent, England.
Growing up in Burslem, the mother town of ‘The Potteries’ Denise has had a passion for ceramics since a young age which has naturally led her to pursue her love for ceramics, creating ceramic forms and surfaces.
Denise’s background of hand made and industrial ceramic processes and design, allows her collection to bring energy to any household, using print, hand decorating and lustre glaze application. Her designs are inspired from her love of kitsch, fashion, Englishness and vintage styles, combined with traditional English ceramic forms.
“For the new collections I am using the concept of pick and mix ceramics. The pieces are all designed so you can pick out pieces and mix them, as you want, to create you own bespoke collection.”
Designs include pink and mother of pearl flamingos, black, gold and platinum skulls, blue, pink and black English roses and a variety of hand made cup cake trinkets.
One of the most important designs for all Denise’s work is her ‘Made in Stoke’ back stamp. She is passionate about contributing to keeping ceramics in Stoke-On-Trent and by collaborating with local artists & industries she believes that her work will not only contribute to the local economy but will also help ensure that the ceramics industry is kept alive in Stoke-On-Trent.
