This elegant, curved large-sized sugar bowl complete with a lid and delicate handles is crafted in Wedgwood’s fine white bone china which contrasts with the delicate blue finish echoing Kit Kemp’s original linen design for Chelsea Textiles. She brings her colourful, creative spirit to this story of the Sailor’s Farewell, inspired by a drawing, and this sugar bowl features the whimsical creatures she imagines the sailor will encounter including merfolk fishing and a frogman alongside many silvery fish. Embellished with a deeper shade of blue and hand applied 22 carat gold details, this sugar bowl is backstamped for authenticity and presented in a signature blue Wedgwood box making a perfect gift while also forming part of the stylish tea ware used within The Whitby Hotel in New York and Ham Yard Hotel in London, co-owned by Kit Kemp.
Kit Kemp is an award-winning interior designer and co-owner of Firmdale Hotels. With a worldwide reputation for her unique and wonderful hotel interiors, she also lends her designs to textiles, fragrances and homeware, as well as being a published author. Kit Kemp has won many awards for her iconic designs.
Celebrated for her individual and original approach to design, Kit Kemp is a champion of British art, craft and sculpture. It was for this reason that Wedgwood approached her to create a collection of specially designed fine bone china.
Kit’s influences are often whimsical and lyrical, and usually contain a host of mythical animals. Hence, her Wedgwood collections feature a series of fantastical characters and surreal patterns that have a primitive feel.
