Moorland Pottery as a company has been trading for over 60 years having taken over Studio Szeiler in 1987 and
changing the name to Moorland Pottery after the name of the road that the factory resides on.
In the early days we were more focused on the ' Art Pottery ' and collectable pottery scene, concentrating
on hand craft and technique. The items above for instance were hand turned on a lathe and take after the designs of Kieth Murrey while at Wedgwoods.
Though we have transformed the business from those early days in to a very much more focused operation,
the early work still resonates in our current production. The items above for instance are the early hand painted pieces which lead directly to the distinctive style that the majority of our production now has.
Today we sit positioned with an unmistakable style that sets us apart from any other producer and one for which lends itself to the themes that we now work with. The pieces above are from the Chrom 'A' Zone range which precedes the current production by around 5 years. it was all hand painted and was very time consuming to produce, it was only mildly successful but had a small band of collectors.
The piece above 'Mile Zone' was a 100 limited edition in the year 2000 to mark the millennium and was produces in etched gold and matt platinum, again it was time consuming to make and though interesting in itself using some innovative production techniques wasn't to be a direction that would bare much fruit.
