Home Tableware & Barware | Indigo Storm Mug by Faye Toogood for 1882 Ltd ZK70200

Faye Toogood’s latest addition to her range of ceramic designs for 1882 Ltd puts a fresh spin on the forms and traditions of English creamware. Indigo Rain reinterprets the homely familiarity of blue-and-white striped crockery in a new design informed by the spirit of serendipitous discovery.


Representing a streamlined take on England's ceramic heritage, the fine earthenware employs the familiar tones of English Delftware: cream offset with a rich, deep blue. Broad bands of indigo glaze, like painterly washes of watercolour, are applied to rough canvas and then transferred to the pieces – the characteristic grain of the fabric imbues the delicate ceramics with the hardworking spirit of dark-dyed denim.


1882 Ltd is a traditional ceramic producer for the 21st century. Originally set-up by the Johnson Brothers in the heart of the Stoke-on-Trent potteries in 1882, the company today remains a family business, brought back to life in 2011 by Emily Johnson and her father Christopher.


Frequently collaborating with the most sought-after contemporary designers, Emily hopes to bring inventively designed ceramics to a wider audience while testing the skill and patience of the Master Potter, Christopher Johnson, and the incredibly talented potters, modelers, and makers that reside in Stoke-on-Trent.
