Q:

Who makes Old Tupton Ware?

A:

Old Tupton Ware, a collection of tube-lined ceramics, is made by the company of the same name. In 2009, the company was purchased by Widdop Bingham. Old Tupton Ware is located in the United Kingdom, and the collection features more than 50 designs and 15 patterns.

Old Tupton Ware is hand made by pouring liquid clay into molds. Once the piece is dried, it is removed from the mold. After the piece has been prepped, the design is hand drawn on it, and it is tube-lined with slip clay, creating raised outlines that keep the paints from running together. Each piece goes into the kiln after painting, and then a finishing glaze is applied.
