Mill Couple 1 by Anna Smyth

£110.00

Anna has used her own family history to inform this collection of thrown, decorated porcelain vessels, celebrating our once great linen industry.

Each bobbin shaped piece represents one of our many linen workers, each wearing decoration which symbolises their relationship to the mill, their work and each other.

Mill Couple 1 – from a series of individually created ceramic pieces designed by Anna Smyth.  As such, no two will be identical.  Whilst intended to be displayed as a pair, they are available for individual purchase. Packaged in beautiful individual gift boxes which are free of charge whilst stocks last.
