Fine Bone China

I consider myself very fortunate to have known Michael Sutty as a master artist and as a dear friend.
It is no exaggeration to say that he was one of the most skilled and innovative ceramic workers in the world.
With his studio in Stoke-on-Trent and showrooms in London, he worked in the more difficult “natural” medium of bone china rather than porcelain. During numerous high-temperature firings, where there was the ever-present danger of ruining the sculpting, the china, glaze and enamel colours all became intimately bonded together. This intricate process created the translucent, vitrified finish which characterises his sculptures.
His work has been displayed at many regimental museums as well as at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Virtually every Royal household in Britain boasts at least one Sutty piece.
