The first Cornishware factory (1864) has a rather romantic beginning; only after founder Thomas Goodwin Green won the heart of his wife and whilst on their honeymoon came across a charming craft pottery at Church Gresley – the same church on their backstamp - was Cornishware born. Green was a colourful character and an ambitious man; that by the end of the 19th century had model production that rivalled anything made in Stoke-on-Trent, the pottery ‘capital’ of the UK.
Not long after the dawn of the new century and thanks to the growth of the housewife in the 20s and 30s decorative ceramics took centre stage in the kitchen. The iconic stripe design was first produced around 1923 characterised by beautiful bands of bold colour and crisp white synonymous with the blue Atlantic sea and Cornish clouds. Today every product uses the original Cornish clay and glaze used since the 1920s and many of the time honoured manufacturing techniques. Flatware items are decorated by hand and handled items are made using similar and highly dextrous skills with the additional process of applying wax relief to all the cream coloured areas before a hand dipping process is deployed.
Such Romantic origins became a cornerstone to the brand’s identity alongside the clean shapes and well-defined colourful forms which now live on in our homes.
