Lily of the Valley

June 13, 2017

 

Join our email list and receive new of the limited edition launches. Our new design will be launched later this week.

We design and make four new limited editions each year of the wild flowers we find growing in and around our studio. Our studio is in the middle of the North York Moors, a stunning, rich, diverse and ever changing landscape.

A wide variety of colourful wild flowers have been returning to the grass verges in the National Park since cutting the summer grasses ceased.  The wild flowers have been spreading slowly through the valley bottoms.

Design – Nation: Marks & Tools is a major showcase exhibition of work by over twenty Design-Nation network members at the OXO Tower Gallery for London Craft Week.

We are delighted to be showing one of our Original Works – Landscape – Cameo engraved Glass alongside some of our opaque studio production bowls, one of which has been kindly used in the poster.

Lilly of the Valley

We are patiently waiting for the Lilly of the Valley to flower.

Our next design to launch on 21st June, celebrates this beautiful, scented flower as part of the ongoing series of limited edition bowls.
The roadside verges within the North York Moors National Park are no longer cut back, creating the conditions for the return of many wild flowers.

These small ‘wildlife corridors’ are a reminder of nature’s bounty, beauty and strength.

Crocus Limited Edition Bowl

March 8, 2017

Our first design of 2017 is an explosion of rich colour. ‘Crocus’ is an intense purple bowl with a transparent bright yellow lip. There is a slight hint of green where the two colours meet.

The Crocus flower is all about joy and cheerfulness.

Regardless of the flowers folklore and history, its annual show is always a joy to behold, bringing the landscape alive with intense colour.
