Portmeirion is a British success story. Its innovative designs have set trends in the pottery industry over six decades. The company has thrived at a time when many of its famous, long-established rivals have not managed to survive. 2018 marks the centenary of the birth of Susan Williams-Ellis (1918-2007), founder of the pottery, whose classic designs include ‘Totem’, ‘Magic City’ and the ever-popular ‘Botanic Garden’.
