Since spotting Feldspar‘s beautiful bone china mugs at the London Design Fair last year, I’ve been a huge fan of their simple handcrafted ceramics. So it’s good to hear that not only are they now stocked at The Conran Shop, Feldspar founders, husband-and-wife design duo, Jeremy and Cath Brown, will be holding a live model-making demonstration at the Chelsea store on Saturday 12 May (11am-5pm) as part of London Craft Week 2018 (9-13 May). So pop along to see how their cups, mugs and contemporary china is made.
Having left the capital for an escape-the-city life in Dartmoor three years ago, the couple have turned Feldspar into a highly covetable lifestyle brand and expanded its offering to include lambswool blankets, natural soaps and candles. The products are designed and prototyped in Feldspar’s farmhouse workshop on the moors and made by skilled craftspeople around the UK. Admittedly the price tag is not for everyone, but starting the day with a favourite brew in one of these beauties is surely worth it.
Espresso mugs from £22, Tea mugs from £28.
