Indigo Rain

Designer Faye Toogood’s addition to her range of ceramic designs for 1882 Ltd. puts a fresh spin on the forms and traditions of English creamware. Indigo Rain adds a touch of contemporary flair to the homely familiarity of blue-and-white striped crockery. The fine earthenware showcases the classic tones of English Delftware: cream offset with a rich, deep blue. Broad bands of indigo glaze – like painterly washes of watercolour – are applied to rough canvas and then transferred directly to the pieces… The characteristic fabric grain lends the ceramics an instantly urban look suggesting dark-dyed denim. With subtly different stripes for every plate, bowl and cup, each piece is reassuringly unique.

Indigo Storm

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.
