Why choose Denby?
Handcrafted stoneware that is made from the strongest Derbyshire clay. When it comes to durability, Denby stoneware is the stuff of legend.
Denby pride themselves on the strength and exceptional craftsmanship of their pottery, which they have been making in England for over 200 Years. They still source their super strong Derbyshire clay from just behind their factory as they did centuries ago. And using time-honoured skills and traditions, they turn it by hand into beautiful stoneware.
Four generations back, artists in Derbyshire became pottery pioneers when they used their skills to turn strong clay into the famous Denby collections we love today. We're proud that their skills and attention to detail are still very much alive. There are now over 5000 glazes and a growing range of distinctive colours, shapes and patterns - all hand finished, so no piece is ever exactly the same. In fact, only after being passed through 25 pairs of hands is each piece then awarded the Denby seal of approval.
