Designed by Julie Spurgeon and skillfully made by hand in England, Material Pleasures captures the essence of a movement towards more individual, hand made products with a traceable source.

"My creative approach to design originates in the senses, inspired by sensory memory and the relationship between visual memory and tactile perception. Material Pleasures draws on the happy sights, sounds and treasured experiences of my childhood and later life. Material Pleasures, I hope, will evoke similar emotions in you and serve to underline the beauty of the familiar."

Julie graduated from Central Saint Martinís College of Art and Design, London with First Class Honours in Ceramic Design.
