The Company

Our History

Devon Ceramics was founded by Vernon Gay in 1981. The company was set up after Vernon successfully completed a scholarship, sponsored by Cadbury Schweppes and achieved the prestigious ‘Best UK Young Commercial Designer’ Award. Since then, Vernon has leveraged his entrepreneurial, creative and artistic talents, developing extensive knowledge of ceramics and manufacturing techniques. The business has grown from strength to strength and evolved into a highly respected and reputable seasonal gift solutions design and manufacturing company.

Devon Ceramics has a large purpose built site in the heart of the highly individual Devonshire market town of Totnes. The business has in recent years continued to expand and diversify, and the site is now home to ‘China Blue’ which provides a state-of-the-art versatile, creative, contemporary retail and visitor experience.

The combination of retailing and manufacturing expertise is a powerful mix for Devon Ceramics clients. DC developed an integrated and ‘added value’ consultative service to both retail and wholesale organisations, and it is this that sets DC apart from its competitors. It has evolved into a professional design company with the ability to create, design, manufacture and deliver seasonal gift solutions.
