Aston Pottery - English Florals - Fritillary
Jane and Stephen Baughan set up a pottery in an old stable building on a farm on the edge of the Cotswolds, in 1990.
Since then they have grown and expanded by renovating other farm buildings dating back to 1836, to use as additional workshops. Here the pottery is made using traditional methods of slip-casting and jollying. It is then carefully decorated by hand using a combination of fresh colours and a wide variety of surface designs. They have developed their own specialised technique of hand stencilling on pottery, which gives the designs a fresh and crisp outline.
The aim is to produce ware of high quality in items of design durability and practicality, which is functional and good to live with.
All products are microwave and dishwasher proof and can be purchased from the Town Council offices.

Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee
Cricklade Town Council commissioned the design of the mosaic to be laid in Saxons Rest community garden. The mosaic is at the heart of the town and, along with the Jubilee Clock installed to mark Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897, will be a lasting legacy for future generations.
The mosaic design was used as a theme for the celebrations and can be found on literature and car stickers as well as on the specially commissioned commemorative items. These include:
A special edition Royal Worcester commemorative plate. Only 500 have been commissioned and each comes complete with a Limited Edition Certificate.
Coronation Revealed - a commemorative booklet featuring Cricklade’s memories of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
You can purchase Jubilee and Commemorative memorabilia from the Town Council offices.
