The Mr & Mrs Mugs are a great example of good design. The mugs are perfectly shaped, have an incredibly smooth, tactile and matt finish, and sit just right in the hand. The colours are sublime and the pleasure in using them enhances the quality and enjoyment of the tea or coffee that they contain. Handmade in England, each Mr & Mrs Mug is individually slipcast from vitrified earthenware. The clay is fired to a high temperature until it is vitrified and no longer porous, giving it a stone like quality. The interior is then glazed but the exterior is unglazed and polished to achieve that fantastic smooth pebbly finish. Part of our tableware collection, the ceramic mugs are simply stunning. Designed by Sue Pryke each mug has volume capacity of 200ml (8oz). As each piece is individually made there will be slight changes in each piece and slight colour variations, which is indicative of the material and the hand made processes. Sue Pryke is a British homeware designer who has designed her own tableware collection after having had a successful career which has involved collaborations with the likes of Virgin Atlantic, John Lewis and Marks and Spencer's.
Sue Pryke is a British homeware designer, who started her journey into ceramics at a small pottery in Lincolnshire. After graduation Sue's first job was at Wedgwood as a shape designer, guided by the design team she was taught to understand the breadth of ceramic form. Since then Sue has had a successful career which has involved collaborations with a wide range of clients, from Virgin Atlantic to High Street retailers such as John Lewis, Marks and Spencer's and prestigious manufacturers such as Wedgwood and Royal Doulton.
Sue is inspired by the everyday and the ordinary; material qualities, textures and the interaction we have with objects. Recently Sue wanted to create her own collection of objects that sit comfortably in the home, that aren't awkward, audacious or tricky to use or care for, but are familiar, have fluency and sit effortlessly. To bring this range together she collaborated with small factories and studios in England working with traditional craftsmanship, materials and techniques to make high quality products made by hand.
