About Us

Since 2010, we are an established art gallery which sell modern British 20th century and contemporary art specialising in artists from North Staffordshire, and the Northern Art scene.

We are locatBarewall Art Gallery based in Burslem Town Centreed in Burslem, the Mothertown of The Potteries which is one of the old six towns which make-up the city of Stoke on Trent.

We specialise in art and ceramics including studio ceramics by artists from the Midlands and North with one of the best collections of art from Stoke on Trent.

Our 20th Century art collections includes artists such as Arthur Berry, Enos Lovatt, Muriel Pemberton, Jack Simcock, John Shelton and Norman Cope. All have a strong connection to the Burslem School of Art which was the creative training ground for the art departments of the giants of pottery manufacture in the 20th Century, including Royal Doulton, Wedgwood, Spode, and Moorcroft.

We also represent watercolour artists William Bowyer RA, Ivan Taylor, Geoffrey Wynne RI and Mark Elsmore all prestigious prize winning artists originally from the North Staffordshire area with international art followings.

More recently younger established artists living in the Staffordshire area who are carving out their own following internationally including Rob Pointon one of the new breed of artists in the British contemporary art scene painting live on his easel and Paine Proffitt whose acrylic football art work is gaining fans of every colour across the world.

We also have a wonderful selection of ceramics both by studio ceramic artists and hand painted art pottery, all of which are unique and collectable while beautiful in form.

Our sculpture offering includes modeller Tim Perks whose modern contemporary ceramic figurative sculptures suspended on hand finished oak plinths are both simple, balanced and beautiful.

Of course many of the items are one offs and we are lucky be able to work with the artists and their estates to ensure we have a varied and keen selection of the best quality throughout the year.

We can also arrange commissions on request please check our services page for more information.

We also have a top selection of signed limited edition prints, glassware, small ceramics and cards in our Gift of Art shop in where we select a collection which are under £50.

Our Proud of Collection is a local favourite which 'tips it's hat' to North Staffordshire; the Potteries, the rural Staffordshire Moorlands to the North, and the Peak District. It aims to provide a collection of which the locals can be proud of, shown by wonderful works of art which portray this part of the world as a wonderful place to visit and enjoy.
