Summer in a Cup!

Posted by Jo Deakin on

With the summer still going strong we are delighted to shine our new pink and yellow colourway on the Jo Deakin collection. 

 

 

The two colours compliment each other so well and are versatile for each and every table top.  Our mugs and cups and saucers make such a lovely gift and with everyone so busy moving from family and friends during the summer months, taking a loved one sunshine in a cup from this new range is the perfect way to say thank you!

 

 

Get your summer sip on! Jo xx

Happy Valentine's Day!

A few words for my one true love…Tea!

 

 

On these dark mornings, you are the only thing worth getting out of bed for. There is one of you for every occasion, whatever my mood you help to soothe and calm me. With your longed for and comforting breaks you ease the pain of working all day long and when you say those three words that I long to hear……time for tea, I have no greater love for you!

 

What better month to celebrate you than the month of LOVE!

 

 

And what more could you possibly want than a new shiny, sparkling tea cup to be treasured in and wooed over for years to come….enjoy!

Stoked about Stoke!

Stoke Visit

 

I had such an inspiring trip last month to the factory in the heart of Stoke on Trent, it felt so great to see the teams and watch my fine bone china range being hand decorated from start to finish, ready to be fired in the kilns.

 

 

These talented individuals understand the importance of both the traditional skills that go into decorating each piece and also what a difference can be made when you are truly passionate about your work!  It is a brilliant relationship to have and I am so excited about the future together as my Jo D designs and products expand!

 

(The yellow film over the mugs here burns off in the kiln, don't worry I don't think the world is quite ready for such a clashing colour combination just yet!!)

 

Stoke has long been the world capital of ceramics and to know that each and every piece is decorated, fired and finished in Britain by such caring craftsmen makes me so proud.

 

Discussing the new collections got me STOKED (excuse the pun!) for the year to come. A brand new colourway (think pinks and yellows) and perhaps a teapot or two could be on the horizon which I really hope you will love as much as I do. Watch this space as they say….
