How it all started and where we’re going
Susan trained as a graphic designer at the Central School of Art and Design and started her career in ceramics by painting tiles but after 17 years in London a change was needed and Susan Rose China was born.
Susan Rose China started from very humble beginnings in a garage with a hobby kiln, English Bone China from Stoke on Trent and a few ceramic prints.
It has grown into a partnership with Susan’s husband Charles employing seven people and located in a purpose built design studio and workshop in Northamptonshire.
In the early days Susan hand painted each piece of china. This proved very labour intensive so new technology was embraced and one of the first digital ceramic printers in the UK was purchased.
With a reliable source of English Bone China using Susan’s own moulds we are now able to produce multiple pieces of china of a consistent quality and the business has grown.
Retail orders are generally done in our workshop in Newnham where we have two digital printers and two kilns. We produce three ranges, bespoke, personalised and ready to go.
Our corporate orders including our very popular “ Mug Full of History” are usually done by our screen printer in Stoke-on-Trent.
With our new website we hope to expand further, so take a look and watch this space!
Having grown up in rural Bedfordshire, Susan Rose now lives and works from a renovated mill on the river Nene in Northamptonshire. Since her childhood she has been passionate about the countryside and rural life, her home providing constant inspiration for her designs with a love of history and nature.
