Blue scale


Designed especially for launch at the 2019 London Design Festival, the Blue scale special edition explores a tonal gradient working down from 1% inclusion of cobalt oxide in the glaze. Cobalt blue is one of the most famous and used decorative materials in the history of ceramics and it is also one of the most powerful colouring oxides. 1% gives the deep blue and then micro percentages are needed to create the lighter colours. Perhaps symbolically, this piece demonstrates how little of something is needed to make a noticeable change.

As well as the large scale installation of mugs, we have a limited number of sets of 6 mugs in the gradient blue scale available to buy. We can also work to comission for the large installation pieces.
