Buttons and more with Stockwell Ceramics

Posted by Rachel Westall on 3 June 2020

Stockwell Ceramics is a craft company based in the beautiful Tamar Valley in south east Cornwall. A small team of Cornish designers working in a converted barn and have produced many thousands of ceramic buttons over the past 25 years supplying museum shops, galleries, craft shops and makers of all sorts throughout the world including The V&A Museum, National Museum of Scotland and York Art Gallery. The buttons are hugely popular in Europe, Japan, Australia and the USA.

Buttons The buttons which come in all shapes and sizes are divided into many exciting ranges including a beautiful range of Heritage buttons using iconic images from Medieval Manuscripts, William Morris, William De Morgan and many others. The Bright Range includes some of the earliest designs produced by the company and is a collection of painstaking and expertly hand painted shapes whilst the Willow Pattern Range takes designs from the historical blue and white Chinese patterns. The ranges of animals, birds and insects as well as the bikes and boats speak for themselves as does the Floral Range and there's even a range of Union Jack buttons.

Warner Buttons from Stockwell Ceramics The flagship range however is the Warner Range. Stockwell Ceramics is proud to work closely with the Warner Textile Archive which is located in Braintree, Essex, to produce a sumptuous range of Warner Buttons. The Archive houses thousands of designs produced by top designers, spanning two centuries. This is a constantly expanding project with a new range of Art Deco buttons soon to be launched. These will be based on a wealth of Art Deco designs housed in the Archive. All button lovers and collectors should watch out for this exciting development.
