Stoneware, because it’s hardwearing, so you can put it in the dishwasher, and even the microwave, and not worry about it chipping easily. As fine as they are, these are pieces to live with day after day, not tiptoe around.
In the making
No two pieces in the Olney collection will be the same. That’s because we apply the pale blue thistle motif by hand using carved wooden blocks. Pattern changes, varying shades, mottled colour, they’re what make Olney feel more charming and relaxed than a uniform, transferred design would.
A sense of history
There’s a whole lot of tradition behind Olney’s finish. From British spongeware – hand-stamped everyday pottery with its roots in the 18th century – to Chinese and Indian block printing. Just like both of these artisan processes, Olney’s got the same feeling of craft.
