Indigo Storm with Faye Toogood

EM_7754

Faye Toogood’s range of ceramic designs for 1882 Ltd celebrates the accidental beauty of natural imperfections. ‘Indigo Storm’ is a bold interpretation of traditional creamware forms; drawing upon the chance patterns created when pigment added to the slip coating does not fully blend.

The whorls and eddies resulting from these experiments – like mini meteorological formations – make up the collection’s central motifs, appearing on jugs, plates, bowls and cups. The fine earthenware employs the evocative tones of English Delftware: cream offset with the familiar rich blue.
