Just so you know
Our Olney teapot comes in a ready-to-wrap box which makes it a perfect gift. Try pairing it with other items in the tea set like the sugar bowl, milk jug and mugs.
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 dark brown thistle motif by hand using carved wooden blocks – the traditional block-printing technique. Pattern changes, varying shades, it’s what makes Olney feel more charming and tells you how it was crafted rather than manufactured.
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.
