William Ault set up his pottery in Swadlingcote, Staffordshire, in 1887 when he left Bretby at the age of forty-six. Ault was best known for his inventive use of coloured glazes. Christopher Dresser designed for him in the 1890s. Dresser teamed with Ault in 1892 and contributed designs to Ault until 1896. New Dresser designs continued to be manufactured by Ault until 1909, five years after Dresser's death.
