'Minkstone was a company who operated at the old pottery works in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent and produced what they described as "Scandinavian-style" high relief concrete cladding blocks which could be arranged in a wide assortment of patterns.
They also produced murals, designed by their panel of artists and designers, their publicity leaflet outlining the range of different finishes - including glass and metallic - colours and styles available.' Source: (visit link)
