About Us

Mike and Carol Francis, Francis Ceramics

Mike FrancisCarol FrancisWe have run our studio, Francis Ceramics, since 1980 and have been based in Pembrokeshire for twenty-five years.
Originally, we specialised in studio ceramics but now concentrate on hand-painted tiling.

We both have a fine art background, Mike studying painting at the Royal College of Art, and Carol studying painting at the Royal Academy Schools.  These skills have always been of great benefit, providing the ability to create high quality tile panels, murals and individual tiles that embody excellent painting and design.

 Whilst at the RCA, Mike became increasingly interested in ceramics.  The painting school was at that time, situated in a wing of the Victoria and Albert Museum and so provided a continuing opportunity to study the exhibits.  Knowledge gained here became the foundation for the pottery studio. 

The studio has always had an excellent customer base, including many well-known clients, with whom it has built long-term customer relations. 

Clients supplied include the following:

Hampton Court                                         Kensington Palace                                              Harrods
Harvey Nichols                                          Neiman Marcus                                                  Colonial Williamsburg
Fortnum and Mason                                The Emir of Bahrain                                            Yale Centre for British Art
Tower of London                                       Nina Campbell                                                    Victoria and Albert Museum

Over its thirty year history, the Company has won several awards, including Country Living magazine’s Small Rural Business Award and Homes and Gardens Best New Product Award.

Exports have gone to over thirty countries worldwide  and the partners’ artistic backgrounds have been invaluable in enabling them to build a business with an international reputation for hand-painting. 

Today, our painting skills are used to produce traditional delft tiles, custom murals and contemporary hand-painted tiles. Our dedication to provide the best possible bespoke design and exact fitting result in incomparable quality and service.
