Inspiration

The Lustre tableware family features a reinterpretation of Bethan’s complex hand-drawn Dhow pattern originally inspired by the billowing sails of Oman’s distinctive sailing boats, together with her Stripe pattern inspired by 13th century Persian lustreware bowls.

Craft

Created in Stoke-on-Trent, the home of British ceramics, from fine bone china and 24-carat gold - the allure and radiance of which cannot be replicated with any other material.

Detail

Each piece takes twelve days to make and is only possible by hand - the pattern is meticulously assembled by combining 24-carat gold and black silkscreen decals, then is further finished with 24-carat gold gilding.

Lustre, conceived by award-winning designer Bethan Gray uses a fine bone china body paired with 24-carat gold and black decals, and finished with hand gilded details. The family features a reinterpretation of Bethan’s hand-drawn Dhow pattern originally inspired by the billowing sails of Oman’s distinctive sailing boats.

Possible only by hand, the pattern is meticulously applied in three separate pieces in a pattern that is complex with its curvatures. The decals of 24-carat gold and black are fired, hand finished with 24-carat gold and finally fired for a second time.

Made to Measure

We are always happy to produce pieces to client specifications and can make changes to height, depth, width and internal composition on most collections. Colour variations can be developed on request and we can even create entirely bespoke furniture and homewares. Please contact the development team for further information and pricing.

Production Lead Times

Bethan Gray Design collections are handmade by master craftsmen, so please allow a six-week lead time for pieces from the collection and eight weeks for bespoke requests.

Shipping

We deliver to Europe and North America from our London hub, while deliveries to Asia and the Gulf region are shipped directly from our workshop in Muscat, Oman. (Collection can also be arranged from both locations – please contact our fulfilment team for details.)

Each piece will be individually packaged, and our trusted logistic partners offer a superb service. On arrival, you can choose curbside delivery or a white glove service which includes installation in the room of choice and the removal of crates and other packaging. Shipping times vary according to location, but pieces can be air freighted more quickly for time sensitive projects.
