Well hello there, I’m Kate and I’m a designer/maker of ceramics, I set up my first business Gilbert and Stone eight years ago in a dusty old garage in Cornwall.

At the end of 2018, Gilbert and Stone had started to outgrow our little Cornish workshop and I started looking for a production partner who could help us expand our range. We started working with a fantastic family owned factory in Sri Lanka who use the same traditional handmade methods as we do back in Cornwall.

Our bright, colourful stoneware cups are sea freighted from Sri Lanka to my workshop in Cornwall where I apply the fun, cheeky slogans and re-fire them in our kilns to give a durable, long-lasting finish.
Our first range of bright, bold (and a little bit cheeky) mugs has just launched, we’re calling them Pots of Positivity and they’re here to remind you and yours just how awesome you are- delivering a boost of positivity at the bottom of every brew!

Have a browse through our shop to see the full range- if you’like to connect with us on…. We’ll keep you up to date on all the news and new products from Kate. ceramics.
