Arthur Price and narrowboat art designer Julie Dodsworth launch new cutlery range
The UK’s leading cutlery and gift manufacturers has teamed up with narrowboat and artisan designer Julie Dodsworth to create a brand new range of cutlery.
Julie discovered her love of narrowboat art when she and her husband purchased a barge called 'Calamity Jane'. Using a festival of colour and vintage patterns that make canal boats so unique, Julie now easily transfers her artisan folk designs into homes of all types and styles with ease.
With bold floral designs and deep bright colours Julie and Arthur Price have created three original design patterns - Strawberry Fair, Rose Cottage and Vintage Mulberry - for a four-piece cutlery set including table knife and fork, dessert spoon and teaspoon perfect for everything from al fresco dining to other relaxed and informal indoor occasions.
Simon Price, CEO of Arthur Price said: “Julie’s designs for us are fresh, vibrant and yet simple and sit perfectly on the kitchen, dining or patio table. I’d seen Julie’s work before and when we had the chance to work together I jumped at it, and I’m delighted with the range.“
Julie Dodsworth said: “My designs are a reflection of our industrial heritage. They maybe 18th century in origins, but they fit in so well with modern society and I am delighted that I’ve joined up with the Arthur Price team to create a three design range that will find a place at the table inside someone’s home.”
