We are working with designer Ian McIntyre to produce a Limited Edition Brown Betty Teapot. It explores some of the original Brown Betty Teapot design features, celebrating the history of the Brown Betty and it's fascinating development since 1695.
McIntyre is pursuing a doctorate degree; Brown Betty: The Archetypal Teapot was his research project for the first year of his programme.
Ian's work will be showcased at the British Ceramics Biennial Festival in Stoke-on-Trent from September 23rd through November 5th 2017. Our partnership with Ian is unique - he has visited and used our facilities throughout his research and design process, and we have agreed to produce his Limited Edition Brown Betty Teapot in the same traditional way in which we produce our own standard Brown Bettys. The only way to get your hands on one of these teapots, which pay homage the long history of the pottery industry in England, is through our pre-order page on the Cauldon Ceramics website.
