People will always need plates

When in London, my sister turned me on to an amazing ceramic company, to a few in fact, but this one really stood out above the crowd. Why? The bold colours, simple lines and neat aesthetic.

People will always need plates create an amazing selection of plates, mugs and other wares that features British architecture as their subject matter. The lines are very clean and simple with subtle shading – like the start of an illustration just waiting to be filled in with colour and additional detail. The boldness in the design is provided by a single yet vivid colour. These plates are almost TOO GOOD to eat off.

British industry is NOT deadBritish Industry is dead, long live British industry

Their new line, British Industry is dead, long live British industry is created to defy the misconception that ‘Britain no longer makes anything’. The pottery industry is seeing a resurgence, while many old bastions of society such as ship building are on the decline – a statement of the times we live in.

I find it rather reassuring and heart warming to see a collection of plates with landmarks that are current and familiar to me. Instead of some non-descript floral design or some such. Check out the wonderful work of People will always need Plates here.
