Winning SBS has given our social media presence a massive boost and has led to increased enquiries. We are also using the win to gain local press and PR coverage which again is great exposure.
Having worked in the Ceramics Industry for eight years I went on to complete a in Degree in Design and Ceramics as well as a PGCE. I worked as an Education Manger in the Custodial sector until 2011 when I set up Dimbleby Ceramics with my wife. Dimbleby Ceramics was born out of a passion to create high quality ceramics. Our ethos is that all our products are made in the UK and we also work closely with suppliers in our area. This is to ensure as much as possible is sourced locally adding extra provenance to our products.
We have now built a reputation for quality and supply stores such as Harrods with our beautiful ceramics.
As well as producing our own designs, Dimbleby Ceramics produces for other designers and we have also taken many commissions for high quality corporate gifts. We continue to build our brand and aim to incorporate education and workshops into the business in the near future.
