Susan Rose

Creative force behind Susan Rose China

Susan is the creative force behind Susan Rose China and has always been passionate about the industrial heritage of English bone china.

Through hard work, diligence and spending much time in Stoke-on-Trent, Susan learnt how to reproduce designs on to blank china with the help of a ceramic printer. Most of her initial designs are paper based using, pen, ink and water colour, but in recent years she has spent more time designing on a computer with an electronic sketch book.

Susan has a varied role which includes a close working relationship with suppliers and printmakers in Stoke-on-Trent and all members of the Susan Rose team.
