Bethan was delighted to collaborate with Editions Milano to create a hand crafted marble tea set - consisting of a teapot, a milk jug, a sugar bowl, a cake stand, teacup & saucer and a dessert plate.
Bethan has taken inspiration for this from the traditional tea sets in the V&A’s ceramics archive in London. Victoria celebrates the ritual of drinking tea, merging a classic British tradition, with a classic Italian material - marble.
The collection features a relief pattern, hand-carved from Arabescato marble by Italian master craftsmen. This fine edging and the use of elegant shape adds a delicacy to the marble pieces, just as fine as the ceramics found at the V&A. Brushed brass is also used to add lustre and warmth.
