Just bumped into this eclectic website of Mellor Ware , a designer of whimsical chinaware and unique tea party set.
Mellor Ware is designed by Lianne Mellor in her Sheffield based studio, she strives to produce products that are not only beautiful, but are also functional for everyday use.
Her influences are deeply rooted in the quintessentially British past times of afternoon teas, garden parties and quirky dances.
A look at these and suddenly, childhood stories you loved spring back to your mind - such softness in the drawings, adorable animals, slightly faded colours that bring a smile, so many adventures to invent around them. Quick, plan a tea party, bake colourful cakes and invite friends!
