About us

We opened our workshop in 2011 but our relationship with ceramics goes back over 25 yrs. Our core staff of skilled technicians span the disciplines of ceramics, construction, sculpture, CAD, logistics and design. We also have a pool of skilled subcontractors to call on for larger contracts and we have maintained long established relationships with all our suppliers.

Steve studied ceramics throughout his education which culminated in an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art. During his time as a freelance ceramicist Steve gained a broad experience and completed a wide range of projects including time as sculptor’s assistant to Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, glaze technician to Emmanuel Cooper OBE and technician at Bob Evans pottery in Bethnal Green. Steve then went on to run the technical staff and workshops at the school of arts and architecture at Brighton University where he was also head technical demonstrator. He then spent 6 years running the terracotta workshops at WT Lambs and Sons as well as periods managing their sandstone quarry and masons yard before leaving to set up Priory Architectural Terracotta.

We are always happy to welcome potential and existing customers to our workshop to see our process first-hand and show why Priory Architectural Terracotta are manufacturers of proven ability and growing tradition.
