A Stoke-on-Trent based ceramics design company is preparing for its UK launch as part of an international celebration of the industry.
Royal Designer for Industry Robin Levien will be visiting the British Ceramics Biennial(BCB) for the Flux Goes Live event which galvanises the passions, energy and talent of new designers while drawing on the rich heritage of the Potteries.
Flux – Stoke-on-Trent, showcases the contemporary designs and enterprising talents of Staffordshire University students and staff and has clocked up substantial sales, dynamic collaborations and stylish publicity since its inception earlier this year.
Having recently returned from a second Maison et Objet trade fair in Paris, Flux will take centre stage for the BCB organised event which takes place at the original Spode factory site in Stoke town centre next Thursday evening, October 20.
Professor David Sanderson, Creative Director for Flux, said: “We’re adding substantial value to ‘blank’ bone china ceramic products that are manufactured here in Stoke-on-Trent, by adding our designs, and selling them around the world. The contemporary global market for high value tabletop products with the provenance of ‘made in england’ is massive – it’s great for Stoke-on-Trent and for the University.
“Now the company is established, the growth potential is great and new customer opportunities are opening up all the time.”
