What's It Wednesday #174
This summer I am embracing the blues with a Staffordshire collection that was designed by Sir Hugh Maxwell Casson.
Hugh Casson was a brilliant 20th-century British architect, interior designer, artist, author (I have one of his children's books), and broadcaster.
These pieces were designed in the 1950s and are meticulously hand engraved.
This earthenware teapot is very difficult to come-by. I fell in love with the French cafe scene called the 'Riviera'.
I also love the 'Cannes' collection. The colorful boats are detailed by the hand-coloring which cleverly enhances the beauty of each piece.
With this collection of historical British pottery, I am happy to say I have the summer blues.
Do you have a favorite piece of pottery?
We are partying with these fine folks:
