How it’s made

All ceramics are handmade in our pottery studio in Berkshire, UK. The pottery is made in small batches of around 30 pieces and is carefully formed over a two day period. After the pieces have dried for a week, they are then fired to 1000 degrees Celsius in our kiln. We then mix the glazes from powders before dipping and pouring the ceramics to create beautiful glaze patterns. The ceramics is then fired again to 1260 degrees Celsius.

ing traditional craftsmanship with a modern aesthetic, we bring an art form that’s centuries-old into the present day.

At Charlotte Manser Ceramics, we take pride in using renewable materials and practices to minimize our impact on the environment. By choosing to invest in our products, customers not only acquire one-of-a-kind pieces of pottery, but also support a small business with a mission to create a more ethical future.


Ceramics are fired to 1260 degrees and therefore are suitable to be microwaved or washed in a dishwasher.


Each piece is unique and will have different markings within the glaze which are to be embraced.
