Chamberlain & Co

 

Since its foundation last year, Chamberlain & Co has been producing some of the world’s most stunning fine bone china from its workshops in Worcestershire, West Midlands. Following traditions established by Robert Chamberlain, this means to join the Chamberlain & Co family is to join a legacy.

With a commitment to fine craftsmanship at the heart of every piece created, Chamberlain & Co prides itself on having “one of the finest teams of ceramic artists anywhere in the world” – to this end, one member of the Chamberlain & Co team has worked in the industry for over 50 years. With every piece created by the Worcestershire brand, each member of the team has an investment in the creation process, from its initial design phase through to the final inspection, making sure quality surpasses anything seen before, or since. This intense level of dedication to the craft and engagement across the workforce allows for the production of extraordinary, stunning ornamental pieces, which often challenge the limits of what is possible within traditional ceramic production. This is a fundamental aspect of Chamberlain & Co’s approach to their art, placing emphasis on luxury and prestige ceramics.

Chamberlain & Co value and make use of the skills of every member of their team, spread across their endlessly talented artists and meticulous, visionary craftsmen. The creation of fine bone china calls upon a diverse range of intricate skills to ensure a successfully produced piece. But nothing worth having comes easy.

Every stage of the process of creating fine bone china is both challenging and labour-intensive, ranging from the initial stages where the master mould is created to the closing phases where the piece is decorated and burnished. In today’s industry, a vast number of manufacturing processes utilize quicker or simpler working methods – this is something that Chamberlain & Co have always made a point to avoid, accepting that true perfection takes time, and endlessly favouring a hands-on approach to craftsmanship as opposed to using machinery and mass production. The brand recognises and appreciates the abilities offered by the team. There’s almost something poetic in keeping a legacy alive – skills have been handed down from generation to generation. Chamberlain & Co place emphasis on their value, and as a result, their preservation.

But in a business world where trends and technology are ever changing, time waits for no man. Keeping an eye to the future, Chamberlain & Co are in the process of taking an apprentice to mould and craft, inspiring them with centuries of skills which have been handed down through generations in Worcestershire and onto new generations, in the hope these abilities would be continuously passed on. Many of the artists and craftsmen employed by Chamberlain & Co were first taught their talents and techniques in the county’s leading china companies. The brand believe that this appreciation of fine craftsmanship is vital, accompanying the art and the beauty of prestige ceramics in Worcestershire. Chamberlain & Co believe they have an important role to play in keeping the tradition alive.
