1882 Ltd. is a design-led ceramics brand produced in Stoke on Trent, England and was founded by fourth and fifth generations of the Johnson Brothers family. At the core of 1882 Ltd. is a progressive design program and industrial craftsmanship. They produce a combination of essential objects and special pieces that highlight the centuries of industrial heritage craft skills and knowledge that reside in the heart of the British ceramics industry.
There is an incredible amount of human skill in everything they do as they focus on process just as much as they do the design. They use no less than 10 different processes to make one mug, all of which require impressive dexterity. 1882 Ltd. is keen to show the processes behind how something is made and they value the importance of good design and superlative quality that will last the test of time.
Their ceramics are to be used, loved and desired and are meant to bring enjoyment to everyday experience. Each collection may have its own spirit but the brand always stay true to its core beliefs of craftsmanship.
