Meet Max Lamb and Emily Johnson’s sidekick, 1882 Ltd. The name of their company evokes the deep roots of the Johnsons’ heritage, for 1882 was the year that Johnson Brothers was founded. The factory was situated in Hanley, the largest of the Six Towns which joined together to form the city of Stoke-on-Trent, lovingly known as the Potteries. The company produced mainly white ware which was popular at the time.
In 2011 the family tradition continues on with the design and production of Bone – a series of fine bone china lights and carrying on the tradition a short distance from where it all began, nearly 140 years ago. A place where works by Max Lamb and Emily Johnson have flourished.
Max Lamb’s Crockery is a family of tableware cast in fine bone china from plaster models carved by Himself! Consists of a jug, bowl and mug in fine bone china.
As the fifth generation of the pottery family that founded Johnson Brothers, Emily has an unescapable passion for ceramics and for their continued production in England. The intention is to take a very traditional material and approach it in a modern way. Her first collection of lights, “Ribbed” and “Bone” are just the beginning!
All made in Staffordshire, England
