Portmeirion Pottery began in 1960 when pottery designer Susan William-Ellis daughter of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis who created the Italian-style Portmeirion Village in North Wales and her husband, Euan Cooper-Willis, took over a small pottery-decorating company in Stoke – on – Trent called A E Gray Ltd.  Susan Williams-Ellis had been working with A.E. Gray for some years, commissioning designs to sell at the gift shop in Portmeirion Village, the items bearing the backstamp “Gray’s Pottery Portmeirionware”. In 1961, the couple purchased a second pottery company, Kirkhams Ltd that had the capacity to manufacture pottery, and not only decorate it. These two businesses were combined and Portmeirion Potteries Ltd was born.
