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

Our 20th Century northern art collections includes artists such as Arthur Berry, Jack Simcock, John Shelton and Norman Cope all with a strong connection to the creative training ground for the art departments of the giants of pottery manufacture in the 20th Century Royal Doulton, Wedgwood, Spode, Moorcroft, the world famous Burslem School of Art.

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.
