Royal Stafford employs several methods of pottery production including biscuit kiln firing, clay and slip and glost kiln firing. Biscuit firing requires up to 32 hours at very high temperatures using a special kiln. This type of firing is completed prior to applying glaze to the tableware. Once the pottery is glazed, it goes through a glost firing process in a second kiln for about 12 hours.
The factory at Royal Stafford houses the Ceramic Café, a workshop where visitors create tableware themselves. Finished pieces and pottery sets are available for purchase at the factory.Learn more about Decor
