We are experiencing a very high volume of orders at the moment meaning some despatches may currently be delayed. We are working hard to ship all orders as quickly as we possibly can in the order they are received. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
Our team are available by phone on 01782 319435, e-mail at or live chat via our website between the hours of 9.00am -3.30pm weekdays (excluding Bank Holidays.)


We are having lots of enquiries at the moment about availability of our plates, mugs and bowls. Please accept our sincere apologies once again for the delay, which is due to the global issues with freight and backlogs at the ports at present. We hope to be receiving two containers in the next few weeks- the first arriving towards the end of October and a second container mid-November, so we hope to have many functional items back in stock in the coming weeks. Thank you once again to all of our customers for your continuing support and understanding.

An Important Update from our directors Amanda, Tim & Luke Bosson regarding Bisque Price Increases

Following on from our previous update regarding price increases on some bisque products from 1st November 2021, and to assist our customers at this extremely busy time following the Covid lockdown period, we have now made the decision to fix our current 2021 prices and therefore delay any price increase until January 2022.

After some discussion in-house at Cromartie, we realise that the current seasonal period is hopefully due to be an extremely busy and prosperous time for all of our customers, and we hope that this small gesture will assist you in the next couple of months while business returns to normal levels.

We would once again like to say a big THANK YOU to all of our customers for your business throughout 2021- and don’t forget as always, our team are on hand to answer any queries you may have by phone, chat or e-mail.

At Cromartie we sell a huge range of ceramic bisqueware ready for pottery painting. We stock nearly a thousand various bisqueware shapes and supply hobby ceramics, painting pottery cafes, pottery studios, contemporary ceramic cafes and mobile studios. Next day or economy delivery is available, and we always try our best to accommodate for urgent orders. We also supply private customers, ceramic business owners, educational facilities and more- contact us for our trade prices.

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.

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.
