More information about Hector Wall light by Original BTC

Original BTC

With a passionate commitment to local manufacturing, where else to produce Original BTC’s bone china lights than Stoke-on-Trent, the heart of the British ceramics industry.

For over three centuries, Stoke has been famed for its bone china tableware. Fascinated by the area’s rich industrial history, Original BTC founder Peter Bowles set out to create a collection of Stoke-made bone china lights, manufactured according to tradition by the region’s master craftspeople. Skill and expertise helped create a beautifully crafted collection of hand-cast translucent and versatile bone china lights.

The highly skilled, labour-intensive process begins with raw clay delivered on pallets to the factory. The clay is mixed with water to create slip, then poured into moulds. Once set, the moulds are split and the shade, base or ceiling rose is removed and left overnight to dry before being smoothed with sponges to remove any lines or imperfections. The items are biscuit fired then brushed once again. Finally, they are dipped in glaze then gloss fired for a natural white finish.

Today, the factory is Original BTC’s lifeblood, producing the bone china components synonymous with many of its best-loved designs.
