Aldermaston Pottery

The Aldermaston Pottery was founded in Berkshire in 1955 by Alan Caiger-Smith and Geoffrey Eastop, and over the years the studio has been home to many fine potters.

The potters at Aldermaston, who number about half-a-dozen, work both as a team, for production work, and individually, for studio pieces.

The Pottery is noted mainly for its tin-glaze wares, but also produces porcelain.
