    We make all of our ceramics out of fine bone china. Fine bone china is the strongest type of ceramic - invented by Josiah Spode in the 18th century, it contains both china clay from Cornwall and bone ash, which means that the walls of the vessel can be cast very finely, making it translucent when put up to light.
