Victoria and Michael Eden established their workshop at Hale in Cumbria in 1981 to produce a range of domestic pottery. In 1999 they published Slipware: Contemporary Approaches (published by A & C Black). Their work is hand thrown using red earthenware and then dipped into a copper slip and decorated when biscuit fired at 908ºC, after which a final clear glaze is applied and the works fired again to 1060ºC.
