1882 Ltd.

In 1882 the Johnson Brothers began producing ceramics in the heart of the Stoke-on-Trent Potteries. One hundred and thirty four years later, 1882 Ltd continues the Johnson legacy with the company’s name, evoking the deep routes of the family heritage. 1882 Ltd was formed in 2011 by fifth generation Emily Johnson and her father, Christopher, who has worked in the industry since 1958.

1882 Ltd’s mission is to champion inventively designed ceramic products, from lighting to domestic ware, whilst employing the manufacturing heritage of North Staffordshire and promoting the British ceramic industry. In collaborating with exceptionally talented designers to realise their interpretation of a very traditional material and craft, 1882 Ltd will bring innovative ceramics to a wider audience while supporting a valuable UK resource.
