Pretty use­ful porce­lain

The Irish Times Magazine - - WE LOVE... -

Porce­lain is of­ten as­so­ci­ated with be­ing del­i­cate or frag­ile and while Wick­low de­signer Chloë Dowds’ mugs, teapots, jugs and dishes look and feel del­i­cate to the touch, thanks to their pas­tel colours and smooth fin­ish, they’re built for ev­ery­day use.

Each piece is shaped on the wheel but Dowds adds an in­den­ta­tion so when you’re sip­ping tea from one of her mugs (¤ 30-¤ 35) or pour­ing wa­ter from her long- necked pitch­ers (¤ 83-¤ 93), they’re de­signed to com­fort­ably fit in your hand. These de­signs are mi­crowave- and dish­washer- proof so in­stead of let­ting them gather dust as you wait for a spe­cial oc­ca­sion to whip them out, make them a per­ma­nent fix­ture on your kitchen ta­ble. chloe­dowds. com
