Patternity x Richard Brendon

The PATTERNITY design studio, founded in 2009 by photographer & art director Anna Murray and designer Grace Winteringham (whose modern marquetry works we admired before), released a new series of ceramic tableware in collaboration with Richard Brendon. Hand-finished by hand, in a combination of white, classic cobalt blue and burnished gold, the "Reason" collection gives a fresh twist to the traditional British Bone china.
