Olio Stoneware Mug
by BarberOsgerby x Royal Doulton
Stoneware mug in white glaze by London designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby for Royal Doulton. The iconic British ceramics brand are celebrating their 200th anniversary with a series of collaborations with artists and designers. BarberOsgerby's range is named Olio, which means a miscellaneous collection. The pieces are made from stoneware, wood and stainless steel, and are designed to be used alongside existing objects in the home. The forms and finishes of the collection reference handmade and found objects from all over the world and are designed with everyday use in mind. The designers have given a nod to the handmade by exposing parts of the stoneware to capture the material's character. A mix of shapes and materials is intended to ensure that Olio is not seen as a formal set, but rather as a casual collection of objects that people will be able to use alongside their existing tableware. Barber says of the range, "we hope these pieces will effortlessly mix in amongst existing objects people have collected over the years. The idea is to be informal, giving the user ultimate freedom, that's why it's called Olio."
