Glorious Mud Ceramics

Cressida’s relationship with clay began with an evening class while at university studying for her degree. Many Monday nights at Putney School of Art later, and her fascination was growing. Cressida is now a full time potter, having given up her sensible job in marketing, to follow her passion through Glorious Mud Ceramics.

The aim is to make people smile when they see her work. Cressida loves old maps and from there came the idea of combining them with ceramics to make a range of products which would appeal to other map lovers and make great gifts. She now has a large collection of old maps which can be scanned and printed on to ceramic tiles, mugs, lampshades and so on.

Everything produced by Glorious Mud Ceramics is designed and made in the UK, by real people, not machines, helping to maintain techniques and crafts on our shores.

Handmade Ceramics Made in England

All Glorious Mud Ceramics’s work is designed and made in England, using English materials and components wherever possible. Cressida is passionate about British ceramics, and keeping the skills alive in this country.

Every piece is cast in bone china, thrown in porcelain, and rolled in earthenware. It is mostly high fired up to 1300 degrees centigrade, as many as four times. This ensures it is tough, durable and dishwasher proof.
