When it comes to designing nautical, there’s more besides the seaside than anchors, shells and beach huts. Authentic and fresh is the theme for a new and hugely exciting collaboration with MAKE International. Today, Bert & Buoy – the contemporary nautical brand from our very own British designer and illustrator, Bert Fowler - launches a new ceramics range with MAKE's Head of Design, renowned ceramicist and BBC2’s Great Pottery Throw Down judge, Keith Brymer Jones.
Bert and MAKE found each other at a trade show in London. Attracted by MAKE’s passion and reputation for nurturing British design and unique products - we knew we could finally realise our dream to take this brand to the next level and on an international platform. Bert began working with MAKE’s Head of Design and renowned ceramicist, Keith Brymer Jones, to collaboratively develop an entirely unique Bert & Buoy mug.
Combining Bert’s original illustrations and surface designs with Keith’s expert knowledge in ceramic shape and form; this new nautical mug is meticulously crafted from light grey stained porcelain to mimic a beach pebble. Each mug features a quirky, unglazed base with a stylish, exposed glaze line and brand stamp.
These are mini masterpieces for your home – a new take on nautical, blended with the incredible skill of one of the UK’s top potters. The Bert & Buoy range is luxurious yet practical enough for the modern home and perfect for everyday use. There are 8 designs to explore - we hope our friends and followers love them!
