    Brixton Pottery is designed by Alex and Tania Dufort from their mid-Wale rural retreat and made in the EU. They started designing in 1987 and have accumulated a portfolio of about 500 spongeware designs and 60 pottery shapes, making 30,000 possible products. 

    Brixton Pottery is made using techniques that have remained unchanged for the past 170 years. The liquid clay is poured into a plaster mold 11% larger than the finished piece. The liquid is left in the mold for 45 minutes, being topped up occasionally as the plaster absorbs water. The mold is tipped and emptied at the end of the 45 minutes, but the clay film adheres to the inside. This forms the piece of pottery, which is removed, dried, decorated, and fired. This technique is also used by many potteries in the Staffordshire ceramics industry, including Emma Bridgewater and Portmeirion.
