A unique gift for marvellous mothers, British designer Keith Brymer Jones’ Word Range blends a hint of retro with contemporary style. Made from white porcelain and hand-finished with the words “mummy’s mug” in lilac.
Porcelain has a natural translucent quality. The traditional design and manufacturing process of porcelain cups made them thin and fairly fragile, but Keith Brymer Jones found a way to make them much more hard-wearing while retaining the aesthetic qualities of the material. Part of his unique technical process includes firing the porcelain mugs at a higher temperature to create a sturdy but lightweight ceramic mug that is tough enough to go through the dishwasher or microwave in everyday use.
The unusual shape of the Bucket Mug is one of its most recognisable features and was inspired by an old bucket in Keith’s Whitstable pottery studio. The elegant taper is pleasing to the eye but a closer look reveals that it finishes with an unusually thin lip for a mug. This is a reference to the fine porcelain cups of ancient China and it allows the tea or coffee to glide more gently and naturally onto the tongue. Keith’s attention to detail in the design of the Bucket Mug allows for a more relaxed, sit and sip style of tea or coffee drinking.
