We love these mugs from brand new company TM Designs who designed them in collaboration with leading ceramic artist Robert Dawson of Aesthetic Sabotage. The collection features familiar and nostalgic art and icons but reworked with Dawson’s signature twist which fragments and reconstructs these familiar images to create provocative new optical patterns and effects.
The initial pattern introductions will be Floored & Sovereignty.
Floored- Draws inspiration from the familiar Fleur De Lys design and then stretches, morphs and plays with its perception. It’s Yellow Brick Road meets Alice through the Looking Glass and is available in six stunning colours from bold blacks, sophisticated greys to vibrant citrus shades.
Sovereignty – Continues with the Fleur De Lys motif and uses a fusion of tradition with modernism to give an impression of action painting, motion, energy and revolution! Available in vivid reds, blues and greens alongside a classic black.
TM Designs was launched earlier this year in London by business partners and husband and wife team Tim & Jane Mason. They are based in Conwy, North Wales and the company uses traditional materials and production methods from Stoke on Trent to bring the products to life.
The premier collection will consist of 4 patterns and 18 mugs retailing at £9.95 - further designs, colours and themes will be released over the coming months.
We think they’re on to a winner!
