Jackfield Ceramics


Production

The Craven Dunnill Jackfield production facilities are located on two sites. The main factory located on the original site that Craven dunnill founded in 1872 at the Jackfield Tile Works in Ironbridge, Shropshire.

The Jackfield factory is part of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust site and provides a unique partnership between the museum resource and commercial enterprise.

The second factory is situated in Burslem in the heart of the North Staffordshire 'Potteries'.

The combined facilities of the two sites support the Craven Dunnill Jackfield philosophy of flexible manufacturing and enables us to produce faithful period restoration ceramics and decorative contemporary tiles.

Within the wall tile production area, the key production techniques include hand dipping, tube lining, hand painting, screen printing and transfer decoration.

The specialist fittings area predominantly utilises our technical knowledge and know-how in dust pressing and slip casting.

When it comes to floor tiles our manufacturing team leads the way in the production of plastic pressed encaustic tiles and traditional gauge, square edge, unglazed geometric floor tiles. All commissions are made to order allowing for a tailor made service to fit the needs of our vast array of clients.
