Kit Kemp launches first china range for Wedgwood
Interior designer Kit Kemp MBE has revealed her first collection of specially design china with a mythical creatures décor with British brand Wedgwood
Kit Kemp, the highly acclaimed Design Director at Firmdale Hotels, has created a beautiful collection of specially designed china with iconic British lifestyle brand Wedgwood.
The intricate design for the collection, entitled Mythical Creatures, is based upon Kit Kemp’s own designs of embroidered fabrics produced for Chelsea Textiles. The design has been applied to bone china creating a unique illustrative style including hand-painted gold detail to represent a blanket stitch.
Kit is often influenced by a sense of the whimsical and the lyrical, as well as a love of animals. This collection features a series of characters and patterns that have a primitive, folkloric feel. The range includes tea and coffee cup, teapot, milk jug, sugar bowl and a selection of plates, platters and bowls in various sizes.
‘I’ve always cherished embroidery as an art form as well as a constant source of inspiration for the fabrics I use to decorate the rooms in my hotels. Applying the intricate Mythical Creatures fabric design to china is a wonderful way to enjoy and capture its beauty in a different form.’ Kit Kemp
Mythical Creatures by Kit Kemp is used across all Firmdale Hotels and is available to buy at www.wedgwood.co.uk
