This charming, curved small-sized sugar bowl with lid and delicate handles is crafted in fine white bone china, contrasting with the pale blue finish echoing Kit Kemp’s original fabric design of The Sailor’s Farewell. Inspired by a drawing which captured her imagination, Kit’s whimsical sea creatures including silvery fish feature in the design which is embellished with a deeper blue and hand applied 22 carat gold details. Blending Kit’s love of craft and simple, lyrical folk art and Wedgwood’s famous fine table ware, the partnership has produced this, their second collection. The covered sugar bowl is backstamped for authenticity and presented in a Wedgwood signature blue box, making a charming gift while also forming part of the 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.
