For 2 years the ceramics workshop at kiln has traded under the name 1265 degrees North. But 1265 and kiln have always been one and the same, founded on the idea of introducing people to using handmade ceramics in their daily lives.

in 2019 we are bringing the two parts of the business together under the kiln brand to form the strongest base on which to move forward.

a large part of our ceramic practice has always involved working with restaurants on bespoke projects. read on to find out more about our process.

We design, make and deliver completely bespoke ceramics to some of the countries leading restaurants.

Design Phase

We love collaborating with other creatives from all backgrounds.

All projects start with an initial face to face meeting, we’ll bring samples of our latest work and glazes.

We discuss everything from aesthetics & design, to menu requirements and in service practicality.

Shape & Form, Colour & Glaze.

After this meeting we can provide a quote designed around your needs.

Confirmed the quote?

Great ! We can get SAMPLING !

Let the fun begin.

 Sampling

After working through the design phase face to face we head back to the studio, to put together a range of samples made to your bespoke design.

this stage will also include glaze development as required. we have an extensive and ever growing library of glazes, but if your looking for something extra special we’ll put together a research round to investigate the particular colour or texture your looking for.

At the end of this phase you’ll have your own bespoke ceramics in hand. you can get a feel for how they work and how they look in your space. At this point we can tweak or adjust the design or glazes before going into full production.
