V&A Tree of Life Large Mug

£55.00 GBP

Inspired by Ridgway and Spode patterns from the early 19th Century, the Tree of Life design features a beautifully intricate tree, created using the highlights of the bright white porcelain for the branches, and 22k gold detailing for the leaves. Complete with whimsical details of a mother woodpecker feeding her chick and a surreal giant caterpillar, the pattern is a wonderfully mesmerising interpretation of a traditional porcelain pattern.
Collection Story

Richard Brendon has collaborated with the V&A to create a collection of exquisite bone china, in order to shine a light on the golden era of Georgian ceramics. The V&A collection consists of four striking saucers to pair with his signature gold and platinum reflective teacups. 

The original Reflect collection breathes life into 'orphaned' antique saucers, which have lost their matching teacups over time. When the reflective cups are placed onto the patterned antique saucer, they perfectly mirror the design below, making it appear as though the pair have always belonged together. 

For the first instalment of the collaboration, Richard has selceted four of his favourite patterns from the V&A's vast archives and re-imagined them with playful and whimsical twists. A great deal of consideration has gone into the research, design and creation of each of the saucers; the attention to detail in the patterns, illustrations, printing and manufacturing is second to none. 

To bring the collection to life, Richard has partnered with illustrator Chris Martin and, as always, the phenomenally skilled potters of Stoke-on-Trent, the home of British ceramics.
