Since founding the brand with his signature Reflect collection, it is no secret that Richard is committed to supporting both traditional heritage craftsmanship and pioneering contemporary design. Following in the footsteps of over three centuries of pottery production in Stoke-on-Trent, our latest mug collection benefits from the immense knowledge and experience that has been passed down through generations of potters.
The result of this commitment to traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design? Three unique designs available in our signature colour palette of cobalt and gold, each elegant bone china mug intended to fit seamlessly in any modern home and alongside any of our bone china collections.
Our Polka pattern is inspired by the popular polka dot design that first came to prominence in the 19th Century, following the polka dance craze that swept across Europe. A playfully delicate design was thus born, remaining popular with designers across a plethora of disciplines throughout the centuries, from haute couture to homeware.
In the studio, our Polka design has been voted the perfect companion for a weekend jolly to the country. From brightening up lazy Sunday morning breakfasts in bed to pottering around the garden, we always keep our Polka mug to hand for exceptional weekends spent away. Where will Polka take you?
Pinstripe provides a subtle yet elegant addition to an everyday moment. Originating in the early 19th Century across fabric, Pinstripe became the uniform for London bankers. Today, the pattern has become a staple design for many a sartorial statement. Available in both cobalt and gold, our Pinstripe mugs are a small nod to a little-known slice of British heritage.
We’ve found ourselves turning to Pinstripe for a much-needed pick-me-up on our Monday mornings of late, the elegant mugs making even the earliest of Monday starts exceptional!
One of our most eye-catching mug designs, ZigZag offers a playful element to any kitchen collection. The intricate detailing in both cobalt and gold showcases the expert skill of our British craftspeople as each pattern is applied by hand, creating a truly exceptional piece of craftsmanship for any everyday moment.
Head to our Instagram now to see how we ZigZag our way into that Friday feeling early with a mug in hand.
