Tall Hatted Gnome Lantern Ceramic or pottery bisque (often called "biscuit" or "pottery blanks") refers to pottery bisque that has been fired once but not yet glazed. It is plain white and looks similar to an unpainted plaster or clay shape or model. It is also known as bisqueware or biscuit ware. The bisque is painted with a ceramic colour such as an underglaze and then coated in a clear dipping glaze ready to be fired in a ceramic kiln.

Please note all of our ceramic bisqueware is fired to cone 04, while our range of stoneware bisque is fired to cone 6.

High quality ceramic bisque is absolutely essential to running a successful ceramics business. All of our bisque is of the highest standard and is suitable for use with all popular brands of colour and glaze, including Gare and Duncan, worldwide leaders in ceramic supplies.

Decor Flamingo

We are constantly adding new bisque designs to our range, including children's bisqueware shapes such as money banks and figurines, dinnerware, decorative bisque such as vases, picture frames, seasonal bisque shapes and bisque add-ons, and we endeavour to maintain high levels of stock of our ceramic bisque ready for despatch from our warehouse in Stoke-on-Trent. We also have a special order service for bisque designs which are not held in our main stock range- please e-mail us if there is an item you have seen in our printed catalogue which you cannot find on our website as we may be able to source this for you.

Most of our bisque ware range is on display in our showroom (open weekdays from 9.00am -4.00pm). We try to show each ceramic bisque piece as a finished item on our website to help inspire you, however please note our bisque is sold by the case as unfinished ware.
