Mellor Ware is designed by Lianne Mellor in her Sheffield based studio, she strives to produce products that are not only beautiful, but are also functional for everyday use.
Her influences are deeply rooted in the quintessentially British past times of afternoon teas, garden parties and quirky dances.
Mellor Ware is inspired by the idea that when our backs are turned, foxes, birds, squirrels and hedgehogs come out in force to act out these very English activities.
The simplicity of Lianne’s watercolours allows the viewer to create their own narrative for the characters in a collection that is both timeless and contemporary.
The concept of the range is that you can collect multiple items of chinaware, adding different characters to your own unique tea party set. Each set will then tell your own individual tale of British wildlife having a tea party!
