New British ceramics by Flux

It’s always good to see traditional British manufacturing get the glory, especially when it involves a injection of young talent. That’s just the case for Flux, a ceramics company set up by Staffordshire University to give MA students active business experience while boosting the ceramics industry of Stoke-on-Trent. Its collection was unveiled last year at Paris design fair Maison et Objet, and since then the designers have picked up numerous commissions: if you’re in London, you can currently see the prototype collection at EDC on Margaret Street. It was such a stroke of genius to give the designers/students the same colour brief, a rich royal blue highlighted with gold – it looks traditional on one level, fitting in with Staffordshire potteries’ heritage, but it also makes you want to collect the set, or mix and match. Download the full brochure here, but here’s a selection of pics:
