Tea and a chat
Tatty Devine share why they’re so passionate about collaborations
“It’s a meeting of minds to come up with original ideas.”
Collaborating has been a big part of Tatty Devine since day one. You could say that our partnership is a collaboration, as it’s a meeting of creative minds to come up with original ideas and objects. We love to collaborate with artists, designers, charitable institutions and cultural spaces, from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home to Poppy’s Papercuts. Most recently, we partnered with the Museum of London and the Fawcett Society in celebration of the Year of the Woman and Vote 100. When we collaborate with an artist, it usually gives us the opportunity to create something we wouldn’t have otherwise made. It allows us to explore new styles, subjects and materials, as well as meeting inspiring people. As a brand, it’s a fantastic way to reach new audiences. Our latest collab with Keith Brymer Jones came about through a dream we had of creating our own range of ceramics, and looking at who we thought was the reigning expert. Naturally, Keith is the best in his field and he felt like the right person for the job! We knew we wanted to make something special, di erent to what was currently available on the market. He’s prepared to take risks which is important when you’re making something original, plus he’s a realist so knows the making process inside out. This is helpful when you’re designing something outside your comfort zone. We consider Keith a kindred spirit as he wants to make beautiful things and he makes us smile. In the future, we’d love to work with heros such as Grayson Perry, Cindy Sherman or Bjork!
