A Passion for China


Product Description

A Passion for China is a personal celebration of the everyday beauty of tableware. Acclaimed ceramicist, artist and designer Molly Hatch explores the family stories behind beloved items; the bowls and cups we have inherited or chosen with love and care.  Molly Hatch also brings the history of porcelain, potteries and patterns to life with an informal eye for fascinating detail.
"As we move through our daily lives, eating breakfast, sipping an afternoon cup of tea or gathering for a family dinner, the patterned ceramic objects we live with are precious witnesses to our stories. We eat from them, they warm our hands after a cold walk outdoors and we pull them out to celebrate the births, marriages and lives of our loved ones."

A tribute to the rich heritage of the vintage plates, jugs and pots that make our homes our own.
