Novelty Teapots by Tony Carter
Tony's eccentric range of teapots are individually cast and painted by hand in Suffolk, England, meaning that no two are identical and each variation in colour or brush stroke adds to its uniqueness. Each example is fully functional, though some are more practical than others! Who could resist a cup of their favourite tea poured from this humourous toilet shaped example?
This attractive range of home accessories are designs of animal characters (mostly), each of which are the creation of Angela Stevens, who founded the company in 1991. These are available as doorstops, paperweights and draught excluders, and are made from high quality
These crystal paperweights are hand-sculpted by a team of craftsmen in north Norfolk. Each collectible piece is signed by Paul Miller and marked "Langham, England".
These beautiful textured mirrors and candle holders are inspired by England's wealth of architecture. The mirror surrounds are reproductions of gothic windows and other elements of stone carving, looking and feeling like reclaimed stone and serving as a focal point in any room or outdoor space.
Nicholas Mosse Pottery was established in 1976 with the aim of producing beautiful, functional pottery in the style of Irish spongeware used in the 18th Century. Each piece is created entirely by hand in Kilkenny, Ireland, including the decoration with hand-cut sponges dipped in pigment to create beautifully rustic patterns.
Each piece is mouth-blown and hand decorated, the colour intensity of each piece will vary, depending on the artist's application of colours. On some of the pieces of this unique glassware, a swirl or an air bubble may be found, which is one of the attractions of something mouth-blown and emphasis the individual nature of the glassware.
Emma Bridgewater, who continues to set trends in kitchen and home decorations twenty five years on, produces ever changing ranges of sponge decorated and lithograph pottery, all made at her factory in Stoke-on-Trent, England. The famous "Toast & Marmalade" script design and the "Birds" sets (illustrated by her husband Matthew Rice) are both immensely popular.
Strawsilk by Karen Keir
Karen Keir has combined the natural qualities of handmade Strawsilk fibres with the translucence of glass to develop these uniquely individual vases and tea light holders. Each is hand decorated and therefore original, no two pieces can be the same.
